I received a box of Donsuemor Madeleines, featuring individually wrapped shell shape cakes in; Traditional, Chocolate Dipped Traditional, Lemon Zest, and Chocolate in order to facilitate an honest review.
Donsuemor Madeleines arrived in time for the celebration of Miss M’s turning ten! It was a birthday that stepped her up to the “double-digits” and we celebrated her as our princess. A night in The Ballantyne Hotel where she was treated like royalty preceded by Southern comfort food of Chicken and Dumplings from The Dish and indulging in the French pastries at Amelie’s. It was elegant and featured three of Miss M’s favorite things.
At home, Miss M opened the box of Donsuemor Madeleines and inhaled. There was a faint aroma of deliciousness. Notes of lemon, chocolate, and almond.
It all started with an original French recipe and a couple by the name of Don and Susie Morris (Don-Sue-Mor). It was a union of a creative entrepreneur and a passionate baker who love created a moist little cake with a fresh, unforgettable taste.
The year was 1976 when Don and Susie introduced their Donsuemors to their Berkeley, California community. Donsuemor Madeleines are elegant little French cakes with distinctive shell shapes. Rich and buttery with a unique flavor and texture—soft and moist with lightly crisped edges—they are made with the finest quality, all natural ingredients. Now more than 30 years later, Donsuemore Madeleines continue to “bring the beautiful and unique to everyday life”.
So? Miss M was ready to try her first Madeleine.
With one small bite, she savored the flavor and the texture. Soft and moist with a contrast in texture and taste. It was a decadent treat!
But would she like them without the chocolate?
She took a small bite again and enjoyed the same soft moist cake. The flavors of butter and vanilla mixed in her mouth. Indeed the traditional Donsuemor Madeleine is every bit as good as the chocolate dipped. It’s just a simple, moist cake the wows.
She kept tasting her way through her box. She really loves the Madeleines made with real lemon zest. They have a note of zing and are beautiful.
Donsuemor captures the tradition of these little French cakes and creates a Madeleine unlike any other. Once you taste them you will know why Donsuemor is the one you remember.
At just 80 calories per shell, Traditional, Madeleines are the perfect reward for any occasion or a great treat when one wants to indulge.
Donsuemor madeleines are available in four flavors, Traditional, Lemon Zest, Chocolate, and Dipped Chocolate.
With Valentine’s Day in the horizon, consider the romance of a Donsuemor Madeleine for the one you love–even if it is yourself.
