“Starting with an original French recipe, Don and Susie Morris (Don-Sue-Mor) introduced madeleines to their Berkeley, California “gourmet ghetto” community in 1976. Together, the creative entrepreneur and the passionate baker created a treat unlike any other—a moist little cake with a fresh, unforgettable taste. Donsuemor continues their tradition of baking delicious bakery treats that bring delight to everyday life.”
We like to eat little treats, especially baked goods. As always we are always open to trying something new. We dove right in when were sent a box of treats to review from Donsuemor.
The box included:
- Traditional, Dipped and Lemon Zest Madeleines
- French Almond Cakes
- Traditional and Dipped Biscotti
The first thing I tried was a Dipped Madeleine. I love chocolate so that had to be my first choice. This sea shelled shaped french cake was delicious. It just enough chocolate that the flavor of the Madeline was not lost.
All of Madeleines were rich, moist and buttery. I can not believe I have never tried these before. The Lemon Zest gives the Dipped a run for its money. The scent of lemon was not overpowering and the rich flavor was still there.
My daughter Nannah did not think she would like the Biscotti. She said it looked like it was dry and like a loaf of bread. She actually ended up like the Dipped Biscotti. It was like a hard cookie. She said she would buy them if she found them in the store.
My husband’s favorite was the French Almond Cake. He loved how moist they were.
Kayla thinks all of them would be great to have with tea.
There are so many ways to use Donsuemor products during the Holidays. The would make wonderful stocking stuffers. Kids could also leave them out for Santa.
With prices under $20 they are great for gifts. I know I would not mind getting some Lemon Zest Madeleines for Christmas.
