A financier is a small French cake, often associated with friands or friandises, which can indicate all kinds of small sweet ‘pâtisserie ou pièce de confiserie’. The financier is light and moist and contains almond flour, crushed or ground almonds, or almond flavouring. For our Afternoon Tea Financiers, we use ground almonds.
