Financiers are little French cakes traditionally baked in rectangular molds to resemble gold bars. You'd think that since my day job is in corporate finance I would have been motivated to make them before, but I never did. That all changed when I finally bought a financier mold. Had I known what I was missing it wouldn't have taken me so long.
These financiers are really, really good; I ate two of them minutes after they came out of the oven. What sets them apart is the beurre noisette (a fancy name for brown butter) that's used in the batter. I also made them gluten-free by substituting C4C flour in place of all-purpose flour - I swear you can't even tell the difference.
