Almond, Vanilla and Blackberry Financiers
I am gonna keep this short... had baked two types of financiers today.. sooo easy to prepare.. best way to get rid of ur egg whites and best of all.. its so so yummy!! you can use any berries u hv in ur fridge or bake it plain.. either way these little cuties are definately photogenic hehehe
Blueberry friand recipe u can get it fm my previous post ok..
175g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup (100g) ground almonds
6 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups (210g) icing sugar, sifted
½ cup (70g) all purpose flour, sifted
1 cup (105g) blackberries
Preheat the oven to 190°C. Butter well 18 mini cake/financiers or muffin pans.
Whisk lightly egg white for abt 30 sec.. put it aside
Sift ground almonds, icing sugar and flour in a large bowl and stir into egg white till just combined.
Slowly stir in melted butter and vanilla extract.
Spoon the mixture into prepared pans – they should be just over 3/4 full. Top each friand with 1 or 2 blackberries. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow to stand in pans for 5 minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack.
I couldnt remember where i got this recipe fm.. found it in my baking notebook..
