Chocolate Financiers

Chocolate Financiers

This is the chocolate version of my favorite financiers. The flavour of cocoa and browned butter is so good.

Ingredients: 8 pieces

Egg white
2 medium (about 60-65 g)
65 g
Cake flour
20 g
Cocoa powder
8 g
Almond flour
25 g
50 g
to taste:
Cacao nibs
as needed


1. Prepare beurre noisette (slightly browned butter). Put the butter in a pot on medium heat. When bubbles form and the popping sounds stop, turn the heat off.
2. Strain. Try not to put the burnt bits of butter into the bowl.
3. Cream the egg whites and sugar in a bowl. Stir well as if to dissolve the ingredients together, but try to foam up the mixture.
4. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and almond flour together and add to the bowl.
5. Add the browned butter and mix in. The batter is done.
6. Fill the financiers cups 80% full. Sprinkle in cocoa nibs as you like.
7. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 180°C.
8. They're done!
9. I bought cacao nibs at a baking speciality store for 178 yen / 100 g. Cacao beans are aromatic and crunchy like nuts, so I recommend them.

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought new financier molds, so I made normal financiers and a chocolate version.
