I am a firm believer that at this time of year, at least every other meal should contain pumpkin or butternut squash, all sweet things should be filled with warming spices, and cake should match the colour of the leaves outside.
Pumpkin madeleines tick all these boxes. Dinky, soft little shells filled with wintery spices, pumpkin purée making them soft and squidgy, and, importantly, a beautiful dark, burnt orange colour. Autumn has been taken and transformed into a nugget of comforting sweetness.
These are super simple to make, and the recipe is here, on Anna's fantastic blog The Yellow Table. Add it to your blog roll now!
