Cherry Financiers


To save myself from another heartache ......

Instead of making more feetless macarons .....

I made some financier  lol

These are not as gorgeous as macs but at least I don't have to sigh and look forlorn when I've got another batch of flat macs -___- ''


any takers ?! lol 

I've been meaning to make pistachio financier when I saw the recipe from Laduree's book that I've borrowed form the library but I still can't get hold of pistachio paste .....

And if you've already made financier you would agree that the smell of browned butter is just wonderful !

Go on , get that butter from the fridge and try and don't forget to keep an eagle eye on that browning butter least you gonna burn it ! lol


Financier recipe by  Gordon Ramsay @ BBC Good Food

125 grams salted butter
25 grams plain flour , sifted
125 grams ground almonds
100 grams caster sugar
3 egg whites , beaten slightly
50 grams sultanas soaked in 3 tbsp rum ( omitted this )

* Butter and flour 24 financier moulds or 12-hole muffin tin and put them in the fridge so the butter sets .
* Melt butter in the pan over high heat until it starts to brown ; strain through a fine sieve and let cool .
* Combine the flour , almonds and sugar in a bowl , fold in the egg whites and stir in the sultanas and the butter . Chill for an hour or overnight .
* Heat oven oven to 190°C ; pour mixture into the moulds and bake for 10-15 minutes , until golden brown and risen in the centre ; let cool before removing from the tins .

*** I added chopped pitted  fresh cherries to the bottom of  6 moulds before adding the batter , 2 whole cherries in 2 moulds and leave some financier plain .
