The drawback of these delightful little cakes is you need a specialist tin eg. Madeleine Pan, Non-Stick 12 Hole. 
I put off getting one for ages as it seemed a bit indulgent getting a tin for just one type of little cake. 
I love the Bon Maman Madeleines so decided to give in and buy a tray. 
They are soft pillows of slightly lemony sponge with a slight crisp outer shell. 
I think I’ll try adding the lemon juice next time

  • George the chef's apple pie, probably the best apple pie in the world!

  • A flawless fusion of flavors from the orient (fishcake and aromatic duck) with old school classics (gourmet burger and Guinness and beef stew). Super delicious and impeccable service. What's not to love? Will definitely return.

  • I ran a pub quiz in Murphy's last week and it was the perfect venue! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and even provided complimentary finger food on the night, a sound system and mic for the quizmaster and enabled us to display the scores on the TV screen! There was plenty of room for tons of participants, but it's nicely laid out so that no matter what number you have it would still feel full and cosy! Drinks were lovely too! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do a fundraiser!
