French Butter Cakes (Madeleines)

In this video, you’ll see how to make traditional French Madeleines, the puffy cookie-cakes that are so special, they need their own scallop-shaped baking pan. Whip the batter until it’s light, and flavor it with vanilla and lemon zest. The cakes will melt in your mouth, and go perfectly with coffee or tea. Get the recipe for Judy Farris’s French Butter Cakes (Madeleines).

I love this video, it is easy to follow. My kids love madeleine so its a big hit in my house.

Do they have a lemon-y flavor? Would I be able to leave the lemon zest out, since I don't really like lemon flavor?

No refrigeration time between mixing and baking? Seems like a much simpler recipe than the one I use. I'm going to have to give it a try.
