Financiers. What are they really?
No, a financier has nothing to do with banking or finance. It is a small French almond cake, traditionally flavored with hazelnut butter and usually baked in a small mold. Light and most and crips, it is supposed to have an eggshell-like exterior.
This week, we are going to make Tsokolate Financiers! Yup -- no hazelnut butter this week. We will be using a rich, creamy and decadent tableya to flavor our financiers.
I can just imagine how much I am going to enjoy this with a cup of tea, or coffee, on a quiet, cool afternoon, or as something to savor after dinner.
