Just finished making these, and they are delicious. I didn’t have the proper mold so I ended up using a regular cupcake pan. It worked fine I just had to cook them for close to 20 minutes to get them to rise completely. I ended up using close two 4 tablespoons of zest. Very good and very easy to make.

Taste-wise, this was a great recipe. The lemon flavor was perfect as is; I didn't add extra zest as some did. Everything else about this recipe misses the mark, though. I knew I was taking a risk when I picked this recipe, though. They are much too moist and dense to be madeleines as is. My suggestions: beat the eggs and sugar until they are thick and fluffy (5 minutes should do). Whisk together the baking powder and flour, then sift and fold them into the egg mixture. This should help fight the denseness that might be a problem.

More lemon zest! Use 4 Tbsp for a real lemony flavor.

I made these for our cookie exchange needed 10 dz. so I made half of them with orange instead of lemon then I dipped the tips, melted white choc for the lemon and milk choc for the orange ones wonderful tasting

I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! Fast easy and excellent for dunking in tea or coffee. I did not find them too dense at all but I do whip the eggs and sugar until they are nice and fluffy. I also use the zest of a whole lemon rather than half. I make them all the time now and I've only had one mishap (used too much lemon juice and they came out like pucks!).

I must have done something wrong. Mine came out really heavy and tasted terrible. I know I should have baked them for longer, perhaps that was the problem. I tried a different recipe ("Madeleines II") and had great results with that recipe.
