Magdalenas - A Spanish Cupcake

Magdalenas are cupcakes like mini cakes served traditionallyduring breakfast with cup of coffee at most of the Spanish houses.Magdalenas are small sponge cakes made with eggs, flour and olive oil but some many modern versions use butter instead of olive oil. 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.
