This is becoming an annual event… The 1936 National Mark Calendar of Cooking, has a recipe forMadeleines in its October suggestions. My beautiful daughter is Madeleine, so this is exactly the right thing to make for her…

  • 4 oz flour
  • 2 eggs
  • seedless raspberry jam
  • 4 oz butter
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • dessicated coconut
  • glacé cherries and angelica for decoration
  1. butter 10-12 thimble-shaped moulds
  2. beat butter and sugar together until it is pale and fluffy
  3. fold beaten eggs one by one into mixture
  4. lightly fold in flour
  5. three-quarter fill each mould
  6. bake for 20 mins at 200ºC, 400ºF, gas mark 6 (this seems a little hot to me… but I’ll follow the recipe!)
  7. take out of tins, cool upside down on a baking tray
  8. it may be necessary to trim the bottoms so they all stand firm and are the same
  9. when still warm brush with raspberry jam, roll in the coconut, and decorate with a sliver of cherry and angelica cut to look like leaves
