Café & Madeleines

Madeleines

sugar cubescoffee, café


There aren't many things the French will compromise on when it comes to food and drink, and un p'tit café is certainly no exception. At home, our espresso machine runs throughout the day from early morning until the late evening hours (apparently my husband's nervous system is immuned to the stimulating effects of caffeine - he sleeps easily and like a log). I grew up having instant coffee so a full-bodied expresso with all its density and aroma is a real treat. 

And to properly accompany this very addictive beverage, a sweet madeleine will do, merci... 

Are you particular about your café?

  3. Catherine, the recipe is a well-remembered, everything is over 180 grams, and I doubt that it can be sweet? Smile, I'm a sweet tooth ... thanks for the new recipe. What time do you have?
