I tried out this generic financier recipe using a cake pan instead of the little rectangular molds. Turned out pretty good but not as buttery as I would have liked. Nevertheless, the recipe is so simple that I am going to keep it for lazy days. I will increase the almond to flour ratio next time and see if it tastes better.



1/2 cup of self-raising flour
3/4 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of fine castor sugar
4 egg whites, lightly beaten
125 grams of butter, melted
2 teaspoons lemon or orange extract
Icing sugar for dusting (optional)


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celcius.
2. Mix sugar, flour and almond meal in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg whites and combine well. Add the melted butter and mix till everything is well incorporated.
3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or till a toothpick into the center comes out clean.
5. Cool and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
