Spanish Magdelenas-Madeleines.

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

Spanish "madeleines", made with oil. You can find them everywhere in Spain, they are sold into big Tupperware or huge paperboard box. I live at the border between France and Spain, and i can tell you that this homemade version tastes exactly the same! very moist, very good ! Before baking, you can sprinkle some sugar on top of each Magdelena, add dried fruits of chocolate chips =)

I made a dozen of these, and just ate one while it was still warm. So light and fluffy, not oily like I thought they would be. This is definitely getting added into my regular baking rotation!

Yum! These are wonderful! I cut the recipe down to make 6 madeleines and I subbed vanilla for the kirsch. Soooo good! I love that I was able to scale it down and only make 6. That is the perfect amount for us. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC.
