Description

Like a French version of the Italian Lady Fingers, this dainty treat pairs with any tea. Topped with a thin coast of lemon curd, the dense hazelnut cake marries together the tart berries. Stack the cakes on top of one another to create an eye-catching display or serve instead of a biscuit with high tea. Either way everyone will love these zesty bold summer treats.

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 250 grams butter
  • 160 grams powdered sugar
  • 90 grams hazelnuts (powder)
  • 60 grams flour
  • chopped nuts
  • 2 lemon juice (organic, and zest)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 80 grams granulated sugar
  • 250 grams raspberries
  • 250 grams blueberries
  • fresh mint

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt 180 grams of butter over low heat until it has a slight smell of hazelnut and the butter takes a little amberish colour.
  3. Filter through a small strainer, and reserve.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, the powdered sugar, and ground hazelnuts.
  5. Whisk the egg whites with a fork before adding them to the bowl.
  6. Then gradually add the melted butter, mix well.
  7. Pour half the mixture into a square pan (20 x 20 centimeters) covered with parchment paper.
  8. Add the chopped nuts and bake it for about 30 minutes for the financier to become lightly browned.
  9. Let it cool down before cutting, preferably using a bread knife.
  10. To make the lemon curd, pour 80 grams of granulated sugar, 2 whole eggs, 3 egg yolks, and the juice and zest of 2 lemons in a saucepan.
  11. Mix and bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly until it thickens.
  12. From the first boiling add 70 grams of diced butter all at once and mix quickly. Reserve.
  13. If you have any pieces of cooked egg whites you may pass your curd through a sieve to obtain a smooth result.
  14. Cut the financial in 3 x 10 centimeter rectangles.
  15. Top with a layer of lemon curd that isn't too thick.
  16. Carefully arrange the fruit, mint leaves, and hazelnut chips and sprinkle it with icing sugar.
