Salut and Hola from Mrs Hanbury’s Year...

The Year 9’s were welcomed into D&T Food for the language enrichment day. They had a very sweet day baking Magdalenas and Madeleines.

What are Spanish magdalenas?
In English, ‘magdalena’ translates as ‘cupcake’. These little cupcakes are often flavoured with lemon and have a sugary crust. In Spain, magdalenas are often eaten at breakfast (desayuno) or with a cup of coffee (café) as a snack (tentempié).

What is a French madeleine?
Madeleines are small French cakes (les gâteaux) in the shape of a shell, often eaten with a coffee (un café) in the morning or for afternoon tea (le goûter). They are believed to have come from Commercy in Lorraine in the late 18th Century. A young (jeune) maid followed her grandmother’s recipe and baked the cakes for King Stanislas at Commercy Castle (Château de Commercy).
