Payard financier: A financier is a small French cake, often mistaken for a pastry – Wikipedia03 Mar 2010, Posted by Best of New York City, Financier patisserie in
Believe it or not there are still more baked goods to talk about from my multiple trips to Francois Chocolate Bar. According to Wikipedia a financier is a small French cake, often mistaken for a pastry. In this case, it’s actually a light-ish teacake made with almond flour. It tastes like an ultra-fancy brownie with a unique chocolate-almond flavor. It isn’t too buttery or too sweet either. I also noticed that it keeps well compared to other baked goods as it was still decent a day later.
