Mini Chocolate Chip Financiers Almond Cakes

June 25, 2021
French financier cakes are made using egg whites, almond flour, and butter as the main ingredients. They are soft, spongy mini almond cakes of heaven. This recipe calls for chocolate chips or chocolate shavings to flavour the batter and uses a rich chocolate ganache frosting. In France, these mini almond cakes filled with chocolate ganache, are known as "tigres" (which translates to tigers), and they are made using a mini savarin or mini donut pan. This chocolate French almond cakes are easy and super quick to make, and they are exquisite! Hope you love them!

Homemade Mushroom & Chicken Crepes

April 23, 2021
Traditionally in France, the savory crepes are called galettes and made with buckwheat flour. Those are the ones you can buy on the street and eat while enjoying your day out. These are not them. You can also make the classic crepe batter into a savory one and then have fun finding all kinds of savory crepe fillings. At cooking school, we made ones filled with clams, and they were delicious. And, in Argentina, savory crepes are often on the menu of many homes: growing up the classics at our house were ham and cheese, corn and spinach. This mushroom and chicken crepes is my favorite, and I hope you will love it too!

Homemade Flan (Crème Caramel)

April 16, 2021
This is the best flan recipe ever. It's inspired in my grandmother's homemade flan recipe, and it never ever fails. Its super easy, can be put together rather quickly and it requires almost no effort at all. A classic for us growing up, it would be present in every family gathering, leading the way on the dessert table. Hope you love it as much as I do!

Financier Cake (French Almond Cakes)

April 14, 2021
Financiers are one of my favourite French pastry classics. During my first year living in Paris, my neighbourhood bakery had the best ones: airy, buttery, and moist. Perfect treat to eat on the go. And that is exactly what I did almost every day on way back home from pastry school! The happiest times. I loved them even more when I learned that these French almond cakes were so easy to make. You can be sitting down with a cup of coffee having delicious financiers in about 30 minutes from now. Go pre-heat the oven 😉.
