Chocolate financiers

2 weeks ago it was our friend David’s birthday but unfortunately we weren’t there so I cooked quickly some cakes for him so that he had them on his birthday. We left early and didn’t see him.

Those financiers were delicious, I had to try them before of course 🙂


What do you need?

  • 45g of flour
  • 110g of egg whites
  • 1 table spoon of honey
  • 45g of almonds flour
  • 120g of ice sugar
  • 120g of butter
  • Baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon of powder chocolate
  • Vanilla extract
  • Some cake decorations
  • 100g of black chocolate

Let’s get to it:

  • In a saucepan bring the butter to boil until it starts to get slightly brown and add the table spoon of honey. Mix well and let aside
  • In your KitchenAid food processor, mix the ice sugar, flour, almonds flour and baking powder together
  • Add the egg white slowly to the flour mixture and mix slowly until fully absorbed.
  • Add slowly the butter to the mixture, continue to mix and add the chocolate poweder & vanilla extract.
  • Butter a silicon financiers baking tray and spread the batter across.
  • Smash the chocolate and place a piece in each cake
