Originated in the Lorraine region of north east France in the 18th century, this small shell-like sponge cake became iconic after Marcel Proust named them in "episode of the Madeleine” in the monumental novel ”À la recherche du temps perdu” (In Search of Lost Time) to contrast involuntary memory with voluntary memory. Traditional recipes include very finely ground nuts, usually almonds … That’s the secret.
