Almond-Orange Financier

Recipe photo courtesy of Charles Schiller

Rich and buttery, this French cake is named for its resemblance to a banker's bar of gold. We've added flecks of orange zest to punctuate the classic almond-flavored batter and baked it in a tart pan, rather than in the traditional individual molds.

Cook's Notes

Chilling the pan before adding the batter and baking it helps prevent sticking.

    Just made this and turned out exactly like picture. Will use this as a fast dessert as it was so easy. The cake is so moist and tight crumb. Would be perfect with fresh fruit. I did turn it down from 450 to 350 after 10 minutes, cooked 7 more...turned off oven and let set 7 more. I always try to under cook a cake on first time to get to know recipes. If it's overcooked, you just wasted time & money. All ovens are different. Super Yummy!!
