Updated on September 1, 2011

A Madeleine pan is a must have in the home bakers kitchen. You can't bake Madeleine's without the correct baking pan and the wise cook would make sure they had a selection to hand.

Madeleine's are deliciously tasty small sponge cakes that originated in France and have been around for several centuries. They're easily replicated and incredibly simple to make - the only real item of bakeware required is a Madeleine pan.

Amazon have a good selection of the baking pans available for purchase, none of which are expensive. You can choose from among metal pans and silicone pans - the latter become more popular of late.

They're another handy bakeware item, much like a baking stone or bread pans. If you love Madeleine's then you'll definitely need a good Madeleine pan. Create a little baking envy with friends and family, by baking the tastiest and sweetest sponge cakes for miles around!

The size and type of pan you should purchase depends on whether you'd prefer a classic Madeleine pan or one of the non-stick variety.

You can also opt for the standard 12 cavity pans, though there are both smaller and larger capacity pans available.

The best selling and most popular of the range belongs to the well known brand Chicago Metallic.

They're a huge favorite with cooks and home bakers and they deserve their reputation for being one of the most sought after kitchenware manufacturers.

None will make you sweat when it comes to removing your freshly baked cakes from the pans, though it's highly recommended that you lightly spray your pans prior to adding the mixture.
