Cocoa Madeleines

Something is definitely up in the air because I’m adding chocolate into everything! I don’t bake as often as I would like, but baking something as dainty as madeleines makes my day.

Who wouldn’t want to cozy up after a long day, with a dainty cup of tea and a few bites of madeleines?

Scouring for tea room’s at a new city is a necessity with all the travels we do. Because a girl just needs to have an afternoon tea, in the daintiest way possible.

Dressing up, sipping hot tea with a pinky up (mandatory!) and biting into delicious English desserts. Often, desperate measures involves swapping tea with coffee. You can’t always have it your way, can you? ;)

Afternoon tea’s are a common ritual in Malaysia. The only difference is in addressing it. We address it as “hi-tea”.

Don’t ask me why. Because I wouldn’t know the answer since I’d rather get busy, indulging.

You have the most interesting coffee cups ever :) Love them. I usually drink greet tea while snacking on almonds. Could use these cocoa madeleines now that I am sipping a hot cocoa milk.

Love that sultry dark cocoa against the even darker background. There’s something so delicious about the dusting of icing sugar against the madeleines too. We tend to favour the high tea version (when in Asia.) Back in Australia, it’s an afternoon tea again. As long as it’s tasty, who needs anything else!
