Madeleines traditionally have a shell shape. But madeleine moulds are quite hard to get hold of here. Luckily, shape does not necessarily define how food tastes like. This mini sponge cake originating from France is still sensational even if you bake it in an espresso cup. Fresh out of the oven, serve warm with a cup of coffee or tea and a breakfast cannot get any more exciting than this. You can make the batter the night before, keep in the fridge, and simply bake it the next morning. Lemon and poppy seeds is a twist by Gordon Ramsay. You can experiment with orange or even lime. I get excited whenever I'm making this, so much so, I don't even sleep in on a weekend.
