A financier pronounced as finasje is a small French almond cake and baked in small finanicer moulds. It is light and moist. The name financier is said to be derived from the traditional rectangular mould which resembles a bar of gold. The cake became famous around the Paris stock exchange.

With a finance expert at home ,I thought why not bake it for him and he was mighty pleased with the taste and the texture. I think the almond meal in the cake makes a lot of difference. Since it has eggs , I did not taste these but these looked super cute, and loved photographing them. This recipe is from Joy of Baking

These are such a classic…..finance plus baking sound right up my ally They have turned out so soft and yummy. And hats off to you for baking something tasty like this and not tasting it….how do you beat the temptation?!

Do you my first pick for F was financiers, since i dont want to bake without the traditional financiers mould, i just skipped. Now i felt like baking with my muffin pan. Financiers looks fantabulous.

Financiers, the name is quite interesting, so may be the taste and they look super cute. These days I’m using lot of almond meals in my bakes and I know how wondrous it tastes.

Wish you had shared how the financiers mold look..:)…those baked ones look very cute and inviting Veena..and wish these were eggless..guess we can ask Gayathri to make these eggless and let us know?..:)
