Well, this cookie or I should say cake because they tasted more like cake and are quite similar to Madeline too. Traditionally, they were baked in a cast iron mold and the heat came from the charcoal. Since, I don't have any of the stuff, I had baked them in the oven (obviously!) and I'm using a heavy Tea Cake baking pan instead. The result was pretty good! Why not have a go at this recipe? You can bake them for the Valentine Day? See that heart shape on top???

6 Large Eggs
160 g Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
200 g Pastry Flour or Cake Flour, sifted
2 Tbsp Corn Flour, sifted
1/2 tsp Baking Powder, sifted
A pinch of Sea salt
Preheat the oven to 180˚C and lightly grease the baking tray.
Combine the flours, baking powder and sea salt and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until pale in color. Then add the vanilla extract and continue whisking for a couple of minutes.
Fold in the sifted flours and baking powder gently until well combine. Fill the batter onto the mold and bake for about 15 minutes or until they are light golden brown in color. Lift the cake out with a thin skewer or toothpick and let it cool completely and store in an airtight container.
