On our High Tea today French Madeleine’s one of mine and many other’s favorites.

Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time

By Pet Shop Boys in the track “Memory of the Future” from their 2012 album Elysium, which contains the lyrics:

Over and over again
I keep tasting that sweet Madeleine
looking back at my life now and then
asking: if not later then when?

Writer Emma Woolf also makes reference to the taste of Madeleine cake in her book “Letters on Memory”.
