For Father's Day, madeleines for the man who is pleased by simple comforts made with care. This week's features: (3) classic madeleine made with Claudette's winter citrus preserves, brushed with Shelley's strawberry jam glaze made from this year's local strawberry harvest, and (3) Earl Grey Tea with ambrosia honey glaze.
Baked-to-order Madeleines: In the mornings when these little buttery cakes come out of the oven with their signature little humps, I am always newly delighted. Doesn’t seem to matter if we’ve baked them 10 or 100 times. And after they’ve been out 5-10 minutes, they start to develop a crispy crust on the exterior and I just want to tell you allll to come get them right then! So excited that they’re in their prime and should be enjoyed at that moment. So...with some negotiations with the oven schedule, I would love to have you experience some freshly-baked-to-order madeleines yourself. When you bite into a freshly baked Madeleine, the crust should be crunchy, the insides should be buttery and release just a whiff of steam still warm from the oven. These tea cakes are much too underrated in my opinion; once you've had a freshly-baked-to-order madeleine you'll know why I'm obsessed.
If you have some time, you can order ahead of your arrival (here!) or come to the window and have have us steep you a cup while you wait, the whole dang thing should be around 15-20 minutes. It takes a few minutes for the batter to chill in the pan, then it’s baked for 10 minutes, and a few more to set. Comes in a set of 6.
Flavours changes daily, monthly based on seasons and themed afternoon tea sets.
*Please note this item is pick-up only*
