After I saw Helena's financiers with strawberry, reminded me that i have few new financier moulds still not use before. Since i still have some left over egg white, then i decided to bake Financiers from Okashi cookbook which i also bookmarked long ago..
I also added some fresh cranberry to create Red and Green theme, so I can submit to The Sweet Spot's Christmas Giveaway..

This is my 1st time tried financier, immdiately fall in love with this small cake. The cake texture is soft and moist. The sourness from cranberry just perfect match with this cake which slightly sweet and surprisingly the flavours from cranberry and green tea are well blended. Feel free to try out, i bet you will love this!
In addition, this cake no egg yolk is added..!! sound better right?
Cranberry and Green tea Financiers
(recipe source: adapted from Okashi cookbook with minor changes)
50g Top flour (high ratio flour) or cake flour
5g corn flour
1/2tsp baking powder
130g egg white
130g caster sugar
50g ground almonds
A pinch of salt
130g unsalted butter
1tsp green tea powder
1. Lightly grease financier moulds or small cake moulds with butter.
2. Sift flour, corn flour, baking powder and green tea powder twice.
3. Place egg white into a mixing bowl and whisk lightly.
4. Add sugar and stir to mix well, followed by ground almonds, flour mixture (No2) and salt, mixing well after each addition. Set aside.
5. Brown butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking frequently until fragrant and golden brown in colour. Place the saucepan over iced water to stop butter from cooking further and burning.
6. Add browned butter in egg white mixture and mix well.
7. Spoon batter into prepared moulds. Bake at pre-heated oven at 220c for 10mins or until they are light golden in colour.
8. Remove cake from the moulds and cool on a wire rack before serving.
9. Financiers will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or for up to 1 month in the freezer.
