I lost my Mum when I was a wee child (4 years old my father tells me), She left me a recipe book in which I found a recipe for Madeleines when I started being interested in baking cakes in my teens. I really love that recipe, and it is sooo much more than Proustian, it is something I want to hang on to all my life and pass on of course. This is why I have kept it in the original French. I hope you enjoy making madeleines with your children – and of course eating them with friends (or on your own for that matter). All the best, Isabelle
