Perfect Bake® recipe


"This is the quintessential, traditional French petit four. These little cakes have a slightly crunchy exterior and a buttery-nutty flavor; the inside is tender, the outside a bit chewy. Don't be concerned when they start to crack and dome as they bake; that is the traditional look. The financier is a great accompaniment for ice creams and sorbets."
