If you have an excess of egg whites and need something to bake, look no further than this recipe for almond financiers.
Nope, I am not talking about money! What I am talking about is the lovely French cake that makes use of egg whites. I have been on an ice cream making mission. In fact, I could open an ice cream shop with all the flavours I have stashed in my freezer. Every ice cream recipe makes use of egg yolks and I have made enough meringues to last me a life time. I have a pavlova shell waiting for a dinner party and Dave has two containers of baby meringues for snacking on. I have taken to freezing some egg whites as I have a recipe that calls for 10 of them, but in the meantime last weekend I decided to make these beautifully soft financiers. They are usually made to be served as petit fours but I did not wait until after dinner to enjoy them. They are so easy to make and I am sure that over the summer I will be making a lot of financiers. I am planning on making one large one as I have a new ganache recipe to share. My heart shaped mould melted in the oven and so I am going to get myself a nice small mini loaf pan, that way I can make traditional financiers as they are meant to be shaped like bars of gold.
what do you do with your egg whites after making ice cream?
