These light, moist small French cakes called Financier are just excellent. Traditionally, these cakes were baked using a rectangular pan which was shaped like a bar of gold and so it was called Financier. But it was also said that its name came from being popular in the financial district of Paris.
I created this recipe during a work assignment in the province of Cambodia some years ago. During that time, butter was a rare treat and so I had to substitute it with vegetable oil. But all the same, these are delicious. All I need is a quick 10 minutes preparation!
