Give me ANYTHING almond. Love these little 2 bite moist and tender almond cakes. Traditionally, they were baked in small rectangular pans shaped to resemble bars of gold.Thus the name “financiers.” These classic french cakes are made with ground almonds and browned butter. Dreamy!! I bake them in mini muffin molds and the results are excellent with a crusty crunchy exterior and moist interior. Great with coffee or tea for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. Thanks to David Lebovitz for sharing his recipe for financiers!
