Madeleine is a small plain sponge cake, sometimes coated with jam and rolled in coconut, topped with a glacé cherry. It was probably named for a 19th-century French pastry cook named Madeleine Paulmier. However, conflicting reports say that Madeleine Paulmier was an 18th-century cook for Stanisław Leszczyński, whose son-in-law, Louis XV of France, named them for her. The cakes are remembered for their association with the Marcel Proust novel 'À la recherche du temps perdu.'
