Chocolate Zucchini Madelines

By Veronica46

These delicate French cookies are known for their distinctive scallop shape. They are a perfect afternoon pick me up with coffee or tea.


When I was in the Outer Banks of North Carolina on vacation, I went to this quaint little kitchen store. I often visit this store when we visit the Outer Banks. It seems I always find little treasures there every time I go. This time, I found my little Madeline molds.

Let me start off by saying that I have never been to France so I have never had an authentic Madeline. I do not think it is an authentic recipe, but I do not care. I am using the term Madeline very loosely I am just referring to the pan itself.

No need for the Madeline police to contact me, don’t waist your time.

It is a cross between a cookie and a cupcake. It is very delicious and perfect with coffee, tea or perhaps and adult beverage.
