Gluten-Free Madeleines

By: Naomi Sherman

Madeleines would have to be one of the prettiest additions to the afternoon tea table. Light and fluffy with a delicate crisp shell, they can be served plain or dipped in chocolate. This gluten-free version is indistinguishable from the original recipe in both flavour and texture and is perfect for those with gluten intolerances.
