French Butter Cakes (Madeleines)
My daughter and I love the madeleines from Starbucks because of their dense buttery yumminess and I have to say this recipe didn't disappoint after some tweaking to the recipe. I doubled the recipe, added an extra 1/4c butter, omitted the lemon zest and replaced it with 1 t almond extract otherwise I followed the recipe except adjusting bake time to 11 min exactly because I didn't have a Madeleine pan so I used a non-stick mini cupcake sheet that I did butter and flour just to be on the safe side and they came out perfectly and then sprinkled white granulated sugar on them and voilà delicious bite-sized madeleines!!! They did have a slight eggy smell & taste, however, after they cooled a bit it dissipated. Excited about trying the chocolate version!

Banana Crumb Muffins
Wonderful - I adjusted serving size to 14 and made 12 bakery style muffins. I, too added 1t vanilla extract & 1t cinnamon to batter as well as sprinkling cinnamon sugar on top of muffins while in oven within the last five minutes of baking for 20 min exactly. They came out moist & delicious. My new all-time favorite go to banana muffin /bread recipe:) I just have to try and restrain myself from eating the whole batch!
