Madeleine, Financier 58 recipes

Madeleines and financiers are buttery plump sponge cakes that are baked to a golden crisp on the outside while preserving a delicate and moist interior. While the batter is more or less of the same composition, madeleines are often baked in scallop shell-shaped pans, whereas financiers are baked in rectangular molds resembling gold bars. With silicone molds becoming the new norm, you no longer need to invest in the often expensive copper molds with hard-to-clean nooks and crevices.
