Okay, I know this question is probably really dumb, but: Is it absolutely necessary to use a madeleine pan when baking madeleines?  Or is there another pan that can act a substitute?  I've never baked them before and as I'm strapped for cash I don't want to spend the money before I know if I enjoy them. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

If you can find something similar, then go for it. But I haven't seen pans that are similar enough to act as a replacement. Whatever you do, make sure you grease and flour really well. Madeleines are kinda delicate/cakey cookies so unless you grease well, they will break if you try to remove them from a cupcake pan or something. The madeleine pan makes it easy for them to just slide out (and of course makes the classic humped look!) Good luck and let us know how it goes! I bought a pan for ~$16 months ago and it has only been used twice.

I would say no.  Can you try some from a bakery first?  I was surprised at how cakey they were.  The basic recipe I used tasted a lot like yellow cake.  I haven't made any other flavors.  The other suggestion would be to borrow a pan from someone, or keep your eyes peeled at the thrift stores.  It is a rather expensive pan, especially if you won't be using it often.

Thank you for the advice.  I'll try looking into bakeries and thrift stores to see what I can come up with.  Thanks again!
