I love madeleines because they remind me of my childhood. Not so special you would say, Marcel Proust depicted the same story in Search of Lost Time.
When I eat madeleine, I recall the happy time I had with my sisters climbing trees in the garden and playing with our big dog calledÂ Crak.
In this recipe I added fresh redcurrants but you can add any fresh fruits: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, apples…
The little secret of the bump above is due to the concave shape of the mould and to the thermal shock (cold dough in hot oven).
