Our Story

It all began 40 years ago with an original French recipe. Don and Susie Morris (Don-Sue-Mor) introduced madeleines to their Berkeley, California community in 1976. Together the creative entrepreneur and the passionate baker crafted a treat unlike any other – a moist and delicate little cake with a fresh, unforgettable taste.
