Cowgirl Cornmeal Financiers - Tuesdays with Dorie

Financiers, little French cakes made with ground nuts, sugar and a lot of browned butter, were chosen for our second project from Baking Chez Moi this month. This recipe strayed from the traditional by using pecans instead of almonds, and toasted ones at that, and including cornmeal.
The result was a moist cake with crisp and chewy edges, rich in pecan flavour and with a little added crunch from the cornmeal. They went over very well.

Visit here to see what everyone else baked.


  1. I still have these in my freezer. They are rich. I gave some to my in-laws who called them greasy. I think they were a little too rich for us.

  2. I really enjoyed these little cakes and yours look so good.

  3. These were SO good! Yours look perfect!

  4. These were surprisingly good! Yours turned out great :)


Thank you for visiting. I'd love to hear from you.
