    What exactly does opening the oven door for a minute do? Does it have anything to do with the way the cakes rise? I know Madeleines typically have that little bump on the un-fluted side, so I wondered if releasing some of the heat helps create that bump. Just wondering. I’m planning on making these for a Memorial Day picnic. They look delicious!

    • you are quite right, by opening the oven door slightly during the bake causes a rush of cold air. This creates the authentic bump. They are super delicious, bake them as near to your picnic as you can. The fresher the better! {prepare the batter in advance though, it needs to rest in the fridge}

    I love cooking Madeleines but have not previously thought to fill them. Is it a fiddly operation? Or quite easy with a piping bag and steady hand? Xx

    These madeleines look so pretty! This Rachel Khoo recipe has been on my “must make” list for too long. I’ll have to christen my madeleine pan soon :-)
