My 100th post!! In 9 months,i actually posted 100 entries! So is it a lot or very little?Ha!

Anyway,here i present a recipe of a lovely french cake-Madeleine.Also one of my mum's favourite cake.I tried making them some time ago after looking at the pics here.The taste is good with a slight tinge of lemon but its a little hard and crumbly.I am not sure if not leaving it to rest enough is the reason(from 12 hours to 2 hours,ok..i should not have done "shortcuts"~=p).Maybe i should try again soon.I did managed to get the signature hump though. =)

You will need:

  • 50g cake flour
