Dessert & Baked Goods » English Breakfast Tea Financier
Jared Bacheller of L'Espalier makes classic French teacakes of beurre noisette (browned butter) and almond flour, scented with ground English breakfast tea. Financiers are often baked in small, rectangular molds (the name Financier refers to their shape — like bars of gold). You can use small, round molds like Jared or mini muffin tins — either will produce a beautifully domed, golden crust (which is a sign of Financier perfection!). Welcome afternoon tea guests with these freshly-baked cakes and fill your house with the alluring aroma of black tea & browned butter.
