French Madeleines

Madeleine are traditional mini cakes from northern France.
Madeleines are small sponge cakes with a distinctive shell like shape acquired from being baked in pans with shell shape depression. I made a glaze and dip half Madeleine's in it so they look pretty and taste also wonderful
