You know the story. Cinderella/Pretty Woman/Whatever. Plain Jane can become a total babe with the right ball gown. That’s what madeleines are… basic ingredients put in a fancy dish.
A few notes:
-you have everything in your pantry to make these
-yes, you have to buy the pan (you can probably buy one for $5 or get one from your mom- thanks mom!)
-it feels weird putting the melted butter into the batter- it’s ok
-the recipe says you should brush the dish with melted butter… this is kind of a janky move on BonAppetit’s part because the madeleines will come out way too brown- you need to dip a paper towel in melted butter and lightly pat some onto the dish instead
