The madeleine would have been created in 1755 in the castle of Commercy. King Stanislas of Poland received Voltaire and Madame de Châtelet there. For the occasion, the king asked his cook, Madeleine, to bake a unique cake. So she made cakes in the shape of a shell, which were appreciated by the guests. King Stanislaus of Poland appreciated them so much that he sent a package to his daughter Marie, wife of Louis XV. Marie fell under the spell of these cakes and decided to name them Madeleine, in homage to the one who had created them. The madeleine has since become an essential cake. It comes in different shapes: elongated, round or shell-shaped. Eaten as a snack or with friends, dipped in a bowl of hot chocolate, the madeleine is always a delight for young and old alike.
