If you've never eaten a madeleine before, you owe it to yourself to make some NOW! Then, put on a Piaf CD, grab a steamy cup of cafe au lait and enjoy! C'est Magnifique!
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
GETTING READY TO BAKE: Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter 12 full-size madeleine molds, or up to 36 mini madeleine molds, dust the insides with flour and tap out the excess. Or, if you have a nonstick pan (or pans), give it a light coating of vegetable cooking spray. If you have a silicone pan, no prep is needed. Place the pan(s) on a baking sheet.
If you are making minis and have more batter, bake the next batch(es), making certain that you cool, then properly prepare the pan(s) before baking.
