Gougeres

Gougères are cheese puffs made from choux pastry mixed with a generous amount of cheese.

The cheese puffs can be served with soups or salads but they taste great filled with a savoury sauce, vegetable or meat and make wonderful finger food or canapé when you make them bite-sized.

Raspberry Financiers

Financiers are small cakes made of ground almonds, icing sugar, egg whites, flavoured with brown butter (beurre noisette). They are light, moist, and full of flavour, beautiful to look and so absurdly delicious to eat! Their outsides are browned and crispy, the insides - pillowy soft. The financiers are traditionally baked in small rectangular moulds and therefore they resemble bar of golds. I don’t have a dedicated financier tin so used a mini muffin pan which, believe me, doesn’t affect their taste and structure. The slightly tart raspberries are the perfect accompaniment to the sweetness of the sponges. Find the recipe here….
