Magdalenas are traditionally a small muffin/sponge cake, often lemon flavored, made in special muffin tins that create a seashell-shaped cake. They originate in France and Spain.
As European cuisine blended with the Mexican culture in the 1800s, flavors and pastries also blended. This resulted in many Mexican pastry recipes with French techniques and indigenous Mexican ingredients. The Mexican tradition uses the shape of a concha and a coconut flavor for these Magdalenas.
