Red Fruit Financiers

Submitted by: SORCHACULLEN
Red Fruit Financiers

Introduction

Les financiers aux fruits rouges

Taken from La Tartine Gourmande

Financiers are traditional French cakes which base ingredients are a combination of white eggs , nutty butter (beurre noisette) and almond powder (called also almond flour, in French, poudre d’amandes). The shape of the cake is usually rectangular although it is possible to find oval financiers as well. Enough to convince you that they are just lovely little cakes?

Directions

* Use a sieve to sift the flour and sugar before mixing them together.
* Add the almond and hazelnut powders to the dry preparation.
* Melt the butter in a pot and cook for 2 mns after boiling point, so that it has a nice nutty flavor(called then a beurre noisette), and let it cool down to room temperature.
* Filter the butter
* Add it to the preparation and mix well.
* Beat the egg whites until foamy but not firm.
* Add and mix well to get a sticky batter.
* Let the batter rest for a few hours before dividing it between 8 small greased and floured individual financier molds*.
* Wash the strawberries and slice them in halves. Place 2 halves in each cake, pressing the fruit down a bit.
* Preheat your oven at 350 F and bake the financiers for about 15 to 20 mins.
* Check whether they are cooked through. Remove from the oven and let them cool down for a few mins before un molding.

I Used a Mini Muffin pan to make more, and smaller versions.
