Don´t forget to set eggs from the fridge a few hours before you will make madeleines. It is also important to use high-quality butter because madeleines will taste better. I use classic honey, but you can also use lavender honey. But I put few lavender flowers to the batter so it makes little bit levander smell too.

I recommend to eat them in day when you make them. They are best fresh. If you do not eat them on the day of making store them in the box.
