Macha Financier

On the other day, we took a day trip to France to get some nice bits there. Aaah, I love french supermarket. Especially, their kitchen section has more variation of baking moulds.
There I found a petite financier mould made with silicon, which make up 20 small financiers. Very pretty... immediately..., it was in the shopping basket...

So... today, I used my lovely new mould to try a French-Japanese fusion cake, Macha Financier. I love macha. It is another taste of home for me;) A table spoonful of macha powder is enough to get the unique flavour and beautiful green colour of macha (see the picture!) :D

A hint of macha flavour in the light yet moist almond cake really made me want to have a strong Japanese Hojicha. Great way to feel the French and Japanese in the same mouthful!


Egg white 3
Almond powder 50g
Flour 50g
Sugar 120g
Macha powder 1tbsp
Butter (Melted) 130g

1.Preheat the oven to 200º. Beat egg white until it's fluffy.
2. In a bowl, mix together almond powder, flour, sugar and macha powder.
3. Make a well in the centre of 2, and pour 1 into it. Fold in lightly.
4. Add melted butter into 3, fold in.
5. Pour the mixture into a financier mould.
6. Bake in the preheated oven (200º)for 12 minutes or until the edge of financiers become slightly brown.
