i saw these financier moulds and just had to get them i love to buy old baking equipment, i had never tried financiers before so i used the recipe from my laduree book but i changed it slightly as i always find there recipes yield way to much for just my partner and I.
140g confectioners sugar
35g self raising flour (cake flour)
30g ground almonds
1 pinch of baking powder
3 egg whites
1 tbsp vanilla extract
butter flour for moulds
melt 1 and 1/2 tbsp butter and brush the moulds with it, refrigerate for 10 minutes then dust with flour, tip out any excess.
in a saucepan melt the butter and allow to colour over a medium heat until brown.
as soon as it turns a hazelnut colour dip the bottom of the saucepan in cold water to stop it from getting darker. allow to cool until lukewarm.
in a large bowl mix the confections sugar, flour and ground almonds, incorporate the baking powder. add the egg whites one by one, and incorporate slowly to avoid lumps stirring with a spatula. pour in vanilla and brown butter.
preheat the oven to 410f/210c
fill the prepared moulds 3/4 way to the top and bake for 6/8 minutes (longer depending on size of moulds)
until lightly golden.
remove from oven and leave to cool for 10 minute them remove from the moulds.
