I didn’t know what a cool baking pan with beautiful molds is for (It came with the house we live in). I baked maamouls (middle-eastern cookies) and mini chocolate cakes in it but you couldn’t really see the mold shape. One day, while I was leafing through Aran Goyoaga’s beautiful cookbook, Cannelle et Vanille, I bumped into a picture of madeleines and madeleine tray in the background. I immediately thought about my mysterious tray and how much I want to use it and succeed.
I made a few changes to Aran’s recipe because a) I can’t eat dairy b) I ‘m an instant gratificationist (she lets the batter rest 4 hours in the fridge). After a small research I found out that the mysterious tray is a teacake baking tray (by Nordic Ware). Now I am looking for a teacake recipe.
