Cinnamon Madeleines #recipe @createdbydiane

I can hardly believe the school year is coming to an end. I celebrate the days my kids have off far more than the days they are in school.

For some, they like the break when the kids are in school and although I may agree on moments, I truly really love having them around.

Don’t get me wrong, it they are arguing I DON’T like that part at all, but as my kids have gotten older…some of that has stopped. Notice I said “some”.

Spring break went way to fast and now I’m looking forward to spending days at the beach and pool with them, and hopefully get in a short trip or to up the coast.

That is if they can fit it into their busy schedules. I recall when I was the only one who scheduled them to do things, now it seems like they have schedules coming in from all over.

Since I won’t be waking at the crack of dawn to drive them to school, I thought I’d work on a new recipe to enjoy on my summer mornings.

These Madeleines are the perfect answer, especially since I’m  not really moving to Europe like I may have thought about for a minute or two on my last post. Since Madeleines originate from France, I will just have to imagine the French Countryside as I sit and enjoy them with a cup of tea. Between Scones and Madeleines, well I think I could just have a European Breakfast every day. That is as long as I get to sit and relax a bit, I hate the rush-rush of school day mornings.

What are you looking forward to?
Is it kids getting out of school? A summer trip? Spending time at the beach? Or are you dreading the heat of the summer and counting the days until school starts up again?

Well I will admit the extreme heat, I’m not looking forward to. How hot does it get by you? It gets over 100 easy here, I like under 90 degree days. That seems hot enough for me and well… Chocolate doesn’t seem to melt so easily as it does when the temperature rises above that 90-degree mark.

Cinnamon Madeleines


  • 10 tablespoon melted and cooled butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Hershey's Cinnamon Chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • powdered sugar for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Butter and flour Madeleine pan.
  • Beat egg sand sugar in mixer, add vanilla salt, cinnamon.
  • Mix in Flour until just blended.
  • Pour the butter in a steady stream while the mixture is beating on low.
  • Be sure to scrape the side so everything is combined.
  • Bake Madeleines for 12-15 minutes.
  • Pop Madeleines out of tray when you remove them from the oven.
  • Then allow them to cool completely.
  • Dip the edges of them into the melted cinnamon chips.
  • I melted the cinnamon chips in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds and added a teaspoon shortening so it would be smooth.
  • Place dipped Madeleines into fridge for 5 minutes, just until the chocolate is firm.
  • Dust with powdered sugar before serving.

  1. I have thought about buying a pan to pan my own, but I actually have never had the urge to really bake them so even though I walked past a pan for $5 at Marshalls the other day I didn’t buy it. However, I need to go run back there and get it after seeing these!!

  2. I love the less scheduled time during the summer where dinner doesn’t have to be squeezed in between after-school activities, and entertaining outdoors. Fun madeleines Diane!

  3. I seriously hope my kids start sleeping in. They were awful at the beginning of the year (crabs and I had to wake them… prod them along) now they’re up at the crack of dawn. Momma wants to sleeeeep or just have early quiet time. Yay for summer though! ๐Ÿ™‚ Cinnamon is one of my all time favorite spices so I’m totally in love with these.

  4. I home school my kids and love having them around almost all the time! I also treasure the relaxed mornings with my kids! Don’t get me wrong, there are times, I think, “Geeze, it’d sure be nice to send them off to school and have the day to myself.” But mostly not. I live in Kodiak! So rarely do we have days that are to hot! A hot day for us in the summer is 65 but our temperatures average 55. I’m really enjoying your recipes.

  5. Been years since my kids finished school. Now I look forward to my grand kids finishing so they can come and visit for more than a weekend’s duration. Lovely looking madelines and dipping them in cinnamon chips…wonderful.

    Enjoy your kids and the summer!
