cowgirl cornmeal-pecan financiers

I like the little nutty, buttery French cakes called financiers. These Cowgirl Cornmeal-Pecan Financiers are a perfect Franco-American take on the classic. An easy melt-and-mix batter flavored with cornmeal, ground toasted pecans and plenty of browned butter bakes into a decadent treat. I have a silicone mold that’s in the traditional financier bar shape and used it here instead of my mini muffin tin. To avoid eating too many of these tasty butter bars, I decided to cut just one into bite-sized pieces and kind of extend it into a larger dessert with some berries, dulce de leche whipped cream and candied pecans. I plated it up pretty for a picture before giving it to my husband. Then I took the same components and just tossed them together in a little bowl for myself. Equally delicious, although maybe less photogenic.

  1. Oh my goodness! That looks like something you’d find in a fancy restaurant!!! They were so good on their own, I bet they’re amazing with that combination of flavours.

  2. These look wonderful! When I made them before, though mine were not nearly as dark – I love the appearance of yours!

  3. Well, I don’t know about other people…but I always love checking out your photographs!! They are as impressive as the dessert. You are always so creative!! Love it!

  4. You always have pretty presentations. I like all the combinations you have added. Sounds like a wonderful dessert.

    • thank you! that dulce de leche whipped cream is going on other stuff, for sure.

  5. These were delish, weren’t they. I was pleasantly surprised.

  6. What pretty plating (and pretty spoon!). You’re right though – for myself, I would just toss it all together for a delicious “mess.”
