Note from Ricardo

To prevent the flour from sticking to the madeleines during baking, place the buttered and floured madeleine moulds in the freezer for 30 minutes before filling with the batter.

The batter will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator, but the baked madeleines are best enjoyed the same day they are made.

The madeleines freeze well without the sugar coating.
