We thought we'd try the madeleine recipe from Rachel Khoo's The Little Paris Kitchen recipe book after reading that they were often enjoyed by French children on their return home from school.
So faced with another rainy Friday (why does it only rain on my days off?) I thought it a great idea to do some cooking with Stanley. He loves cooking but is into EVERYTHING, no sooner have you cracked an egg with him he's trying to eat it raw, so you really have to be on your toes! Measuring out the ingredients on the digital scales he kept resetting it to 0!
So after a rather messy afternoon of 'loosely' following the recipe, we ended up with a plateful of madeleines, warn from the oven for his older brothers return from school.
Oh la la, they are delicious, we didn't push in a raspberry or add lemon curd after cooking as the recipe says, but I didn't think they needed anything else to be honest. I don't think they'll last long.
Now where are those boys when there's washing up to be done?
Happy weekend friends x
