Tulum is a beautiful place to lay on the beach, but also, full of history, Mayan history, ya dig? Phil and I set some ground rules when we decided to go on a better late than never honeymoon. One of those was we weren’t going to have an agenda. No feeling like we were rushing around, because that’s what our lives are like every day.But we did have a few activities on the list we wanted to accomplish. And with the help of our hotel we saw all the history and cenotes we needed over the course of a few days.
The title isn’t as romantic sounding as An American in Paris, but after my week in Tulum, I’d argue this location is more meant for lovers than any city. Phil and I didn’t go on a honeymoon right after the wedding last year. Energy wise and financially, we just didn’t have it in us. So we decided to wait a year and go somewhere with a lot of beach and sun, the perfect solution to when NYC can’t decide whether it wants to be 65 or 35….in April.
And just like that it’s Friday! And I have a delicious Mug Cake for you. Now you look at this title and you’re like, what What WHAT is a financier??! Fair question, I didn’t know myself. Well kiddos, it’s a traditional cake that is spongey and moist (there’s egg whites in there) and uses almond flour and has a nutty flavor. Also adding ground hazelnuts in this recipe adds more fat to the cake and makes it super soft. The extra touch of having white chocolate in the middle doesn’t hurt. I scraped the mug clean on this one too. Financier’s were named so because traditionally they are created in a rectangular shape, which looked like gold bars.
