I don't have a madeleine pan and was wondering if I could use something else instead of one of those.
I'm not sure how much use I'd get out of one and I really don't want to spend the money yet.
Well, not really. Part of the point of making madelines is making them in the shape of a madeline. They also are formulated to bake very quickly and the pan is designed to do that.
Gotcha - I understand. They look so delicious - I'm going out to buy myself a pan - I have to make them!
