Made in a Bread Machine! Rice Flour Financiers

Once you've added all the ingredients, just choose the "Cake" setting and leave everything up to the bread machine!
This recipe doesn't call for wheat flour. The rice flour makes it lovely and moist.

Ingredients: 1 cake

Adjust the quantity of butter and sugar with number of egg whites
Rice flour
45 g
Almond flour
45 g
Egg white
80 - 100 g (3 - 4)
Butter
80 - 100 g
Sugar
80 - 100 g
Baking powder
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Basically, make sure you measure butter and sugar to the same weight as 3 egg whites.
2. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. When it stops making spitting sounds and starts to brown, remove from the heat and strain through a strainer lined with a coffee filter. This will get rid of any burned bits.
3. Along the other ingredients listed, pour the melted butter into the bread machine. Set to "Cake" mode and press "Start".
4. If the machine tells you to scrape the sides, scrape the mixture down with a spatula and mix once to unstick the mixture from the bottom of the bread machine. Press "Start" again.
5. Once it reaches 20 minutes before the scheduled end time, take out the loaf so it doesn't over-bake and become too hard. If you are unsure, check if it's done by inserting a skewer into the center.
6. Don't eat the cake yet!! Once it's cooled, wrap in 2 layers of cling film and leave it to rest overnight at room temperature.
7. This recipe doesn't require other tools or tricks but the resulting financiers will leave a lovely rich taste that melts in your mouth. Browned butter is really important for this recipe. Leave these for one day and you'll get the perfect flavour.

Story Behind this Recipe

To make up for reducing the sugar and butter compared to regular financiers, I used rice flour to make this moist.
It tastes so rich!
