matcha financiers and tiger cakes

Green cakes!  Icky or intriguing?  They may be the color of Frankenstein, but don’t worry.  It’s nothing weird…Japanese matcha tea powder gives these financiers a greenish tinge.  I’m used to the slightly grassy taste of matcha tea and I’ve made cake and frostings with it before.  I think it’s a nice flavor addition to a traditional almond financier.  Thinking back to those Tiger Cakes I liked so much a few months ago, I followed Dorie’s Bonne Idee suggestion and turned about half of my batter into matcha tigers with a generous sprinkling of some Dutch dark chocolate vermicelli.  These are really good just warm, I think, and I like the way the edge bits get a little crispy.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. These financiers were good, weren’t they – though I confess that I couldn’t taste the matcha.

  2. I’ve never tasted matcha but am excited to try these. I’m glad you liked them!

  3. Oh these are so gorgeous and cute! Love matcha.
