Rose flavoured madeleines

Rose water Madeleines




Are you someone who would visualise  beautiful flowers and more particularly Rose, as we come closer to Mother’s Day ?
Mum’s are special and always there for you, so visualising a special flower whose presence not only lightens the place and their exquisite aromas fills in the warmth too. This was the thought that came to my mind when I stumbled upon  MuddyChoux photography Instafeed. Seeing her Orange blossom Madeleine I couldn’t stopping thinking about these beauties and the thought of flavouring it with rose water lingered my mind.  
Interestingly I had  baked a Rose and Almond syrup cake  last year for Mother’s Day too.
Well, my mum is a big fan of rose too  so these bakes are for my mum.
These beauties are adapted from  Novicehousewife. It is easy to bake and absolutely delicious to nibble on.
