80g unsalted butter
150g icing sugar
50g ground almonds
60g plain flour
2g baking powder
5 egg whites
60 morello cherries in alcohol, drained

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
financier moulds

Method

  1. Making the batter

    Gently melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat until its starts to foam and turn a light brown colour. Remove from the heat. Combine the icing sugar, ground almonds, flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add the egg whites and continue to stir while incorporating the butter.
  2. Baking

    Preheat the oven to 190ºC. Pour the batter into lightly greased financier moulds. Place five cherries on top of each financier and bake for 13 minutes. Financiers can be kept in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Chef’s tip:

  • Keep in mind that financiers are an ideal recipe for using up any leftover egg whites from other recipes, such as crème anglaise — that way, nothing is wasted!
