Jee urmaniac, I would like to get hold of the sea shell-shaped pan for my plain Madeleines when I next visit Italy. Just hope DH won't complain too much as he thinks I have far too many cake pans!!

Alix, your daughter might be interested in the Madeleine's history which started in France in the 18th century. There are several stories about its origins. The name derives from Mary Magdalene, who legend has it moved to France after Jesus' crucifixion. The French has historically had a particular devotion to Mary Magdalene. There's a famous church of the Madeleine in Paris that looks like the Parthenon. Marcel Proust made the little Madeleine 'cookies' famous in the early 1900s in one of his works.

The shell shaped pans are available at most any kitchen store.

boufa, you could try online for a madeleine pan. LOL, imagine hubby's face when THAT was delivered. Mine would likely just roll his eyes. My addiction to all things kitchen is well known.

I was about to say that, Licia, and mini shell pans are available, as well. I got the ones that are non-stick, because madeleines stick so badly, and I still brush them with butter before filling!

I love Madeleines, and make them in many flavors, including Hazelnut, chocolate and Capuccino...

licia, where I am it's rather difficult to get fancy shaped non-stick baking pans unless the German chain supermarket decides to bring them on a one-off deal. I will also be on the lookout for such stuff the next time I go shopping overseas. Thanks for the tip.

ChefJune, mine do not stick as they are very buttery. More the English type of Madeleines.
