Magdalenas are Spain's version of our famous cupcakes. The truth is that they are really delicious! They have a subtle taste of lemon and are quite spongy. One of the main differences between magdalenas and cupcakes is that the former are pointy at the top. We should use extra large cupcake molds to allow for the magdalenas to expand properly while they bake. They're so delicious that they're perfect for any occasion, so start baking and surprise your family! MORE + LESS -

    Mix the baking powder, flour, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
