Deliciously moist and authentically French, Bonne Maman’s irresistible Madeleines make magical moments last that little bit longer. Made using only the finest quality butter, fresh eggs and all-natural ingredients, Bonne Maman’s iconic Madeleines are crafted from a generations-old French recipe, giving an unmistakably home-made taste.
The perfect little treat for all the family at any time of the day, Bonne Maman Madeleines can be enjoyed warm with a coffee in the morning, as a treat after lunch or with a cup of tea in the afternoon - these traditional French cakes, prettily shell-shaped, are simply delicious. Individually wrapped to conserve their delicious flavour and freshness, Madeleines are also ideal for picnics or as an after school ‘petit goûter’ for the children.
As Gallic as garlic or baguettes, there are many tales as to how the iconic madeleine first came about. Most agree, however, that in 1755, King Stanislas of Commercy was hosting a royal feast when his pastry chef threw down his apron and left. It would not be a feast without a delicious dessert so a young servant girl, using her family recipe, baked a batch of little golden sponge cakes. With these cakes being a great success with the guests, King Stanislas decided to name these cakes after the young servant… Madeleine! His wife, Maria Leszczynska, introduced these delights to the Court of Versailles and they soon became a favourite throughout France.
Made with characteristic care and attention, Bonne Maman Madeleines are now capturing hearts here in Great Britain. Did you know that as well as the classic all-butter Madeleine, Bonne Maman has three other delectable varieties to try: Madeleine with Milk Chocolate, Lemon Madeleine and Chocolate Filled Madeleine which one will make your Madeleine moment?
Available in packs of seven, Bonne Maman Madeleines can be purchased from most Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Co-op, Asda, Morrisons and Nisa stores nationwide as well as online via Ocado and Amazon. Stock may vary across stores.
