Its time to dig deep into your cupboard and find that Madeline pan your aunt bought you years ago for a gift, it’s taking center stage. Madelines are traditionally associated with French cooking and their techniques, which people assume translates to “complicated” and “finesse required”. While some French recipes do mandate those prerequisites, these little cakes couldn’t be easier. Once the batter is made, you just spoon it in to the Madeline pan about 3/4 of the way, they do rise, and bake each sheet for 8 minutes. If you only have one sheet, you can remove the Madeline’s and re-batter the pan almost immediately. They can also double as a supplement to lunch as they stay in a sealed glass container for about 5 days.
Another image that comes to mind when you think Madelines, might also be those plastic wrapped, fake butter things they sell at the cashiers at your local Starbucks. Fear not, your about to have your mind blown-enter the savory Madeline. Zucchini was used in this recipe, but feel free to play around with it. To change just the vegetable in this recipe replace the zucchini with 1 cup grated carrots or chopped plantains and replace the dill with cilantro. The cheese added to this recipe gives the cake a gooey, decadent, nutty flavor that only real cheese can accomplish. Happy baking!
