Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).

Drain 120 g Griottine cherries.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Spread 200 g ground hazelnuts out on a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Toast in the oven for 15 minutes, then leave to cool.

Turn the oven up to 410°F (210°C).

Stage 4 - 15 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Prepare 500 g Financier batter, using the toasted ground hazelnuts in place of almonds.

Note: All this can be done the previous day.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Sit your mould on a baking sheet, lined if you wish with cooking parchment (you can reuse the paper from toasting the hazelnuts).

I am using silicon moulds here with each compartment measuring 8x3x3 cm (3x1.2x1.2 inches).

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Put a layer of financier batter into each mould, filling to about 1/4 of the depth (a forcing bag is ideal for this).

Put in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up the batter; this helps keep the cherries in the centre of the cake.

Stage 7 - 5 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Put 3 (or more) cherries into each mould.

Stage 8 - 3 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Cover with more batter, but do not fill right to the top as the financiers will rise during cooking.

Stage 9 - 25 min.
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Bake for about 25 minutes.

Stage 10
Hazelnut and cherry financiers
Turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool fully (or until warm) before eating.
Remarks
It is not absolutely essential to toast the hazelnuts in stage 3, but doing so really brings out their flavour.

If you don't have Griottines, you can use Amarena cherries instead.
Keeping
Several days in an airtight tin or jar.
