Although these small cakes have been made for special holidays since the Middle Ages, they are now so popular that they are an everyday pleasure. Magdalenas have a super moist texture and shiny, a beautiful golden brown tops. They come in three basic shapes, they can be a classic, high domed round, a flat topped round and an oblong shape.
