Oat financiers for Louise


Oat financiers for Louise
These moist little petit-four cakes are called 'financiers' in French, as they are similar in shape to gold ingots! They go very well with tea or coffee. In this version, the usual ground almonds are replaced with rolled oats, blended to a powdery texture.

Remarks

It is very important not to overcook the financiers, otherwise they will dry out and go hard. The centre should ideally stay quite moist. Watch the cooking carefully and adjust the time to suit your own oven.
