Madeleines, buttery French teacakes, are delightfully spongy and are traditionally baked in pans with cups shaped like elongated scallop shells.


  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup maraschino cherries, drained, blotted dry, finely chopped


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Generously coat 2 madeleine pans with cooking spray; dust with flour, tapping out excess.
  • Beat eggs and sugar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until light and fluffy, 5–10 minutes. Beat in almond extract and vanilla.
  • Fold in flour, 1/3 at a time. Fold in butter, 1/3 at a time. Fold in cherries. Spoon 2 Tbs batter into each madeleine cup.
  • Bake in 375°F oven until cookies pull away from sides of cups and wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 8–10 minutes. Loosen cookies with tip of knife if necessary. Remove from pans immediately; cool completely on wire racks.
  • Dip rounded end of each madeleine into melted chocolate, if desired. Cool on waxed paper until chocolate is set.
