The Weekend ReTREAT: Financier Mug Cake

4.22.16

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.
