Hey! Your Almond Madeleines looks good! I still haven't got a chance to make this because I don't have the madeleines tray. Do you think I can bake it in the muffin pan?

Hi Irene's Footprints,

Thanks, I think mine should be an aluminum mould. You can refer to my previous Madeleines post.

Hi Happy Flour

Wow!It looks so fantastic. Btw, can glucose be replaced by some other ingredient.

Thanks!

Hi Michelle,

You can omit the glucose but you have to replace it with icing sugar. Without glucose the texture of the cake will be slightly dry.
