There are two types of madeleine cakes: a French version and and English version. Mine is a combination of the two. French madeleines are fatless sponges, in which the cake mix is poured into sea shell shaped moulds. The English, however, decided to jazz them up by adding butter, and covering them in jam and coconut. With my cupcakes, I filled sea shell based moulds with the fatless sponge recipe, but used wholemeal flour instead of the traditional white, and then added all the fancy English toppings. And voila-there-you-have-it, Anglo-Franco madeleines. Based on the brands I used, each cupcake is about 97 calories.
