Financiers are little classic french tea cake baked using ground almonds. These are light and moist delicious treat which is very easy to prepare!It seems these little spongy cake got the name ‘financiers’ from the traditional rectangular mold, which resembles a bar of gold.
Traditionally financiers are made using small rectangular loaves. Since I dont have it handy…I used my cupcake molds. Whatever mold you use…. these are amazing. This is for the nut lovers, since the core ingredient is ground almonds. Other ingredients are egg white,sugar,little flour and butter.
It doesn’t take much time to prepare, but I am assuring a delicious treat for your family.Recipe adapted from my favorite pastry chef Anna Olson.
Lets see how these cute cakes are made…
