How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the center of the oven. Place the almond flour (meal) or blanched almonds on a baking sheet and bake 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F . Place 12 boat shaped molds/madelaine or muffin tins on a large baking sheet. Remove in 5 minutes and grease with clarified butter.
  • To make the clarified butter: Place 1/2 cup unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Once the butter has melted let it come to a boil. As it boils you will notice that a foam will appear on the surface.
  • Continue to cook the butter until it looks clear and the milk solids have dropped to the bottom of the pan and have turned dark brown.
  • Remove from heat and immediately strain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer.
  • Let cool to room temperature before using.
  • You will have more than 1/3 cup of clarified butter. Use the remaining butter to grease the molds.
  • Using a pastry brush lightly grease the molds and allow the butter to set.
  • Set aside while you make the batter.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, ground almonds, powdered sugar and salt.
  • Fold in the lightly beaten egg whites, vanilla, and the 1/3 cup clarified butter.
  • Fill each mold almost to the rim and bake for 4 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place a few berries on top of each.
  • Return the molds to the oven and bake a further 5-7 minutes or until the Financiers have become light brown on top and are springy to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
  • These are best eaten the same day you make them.
