Leftover Egg Whites - Financiers

As indicated in my previous post on "What to do with left over egg whites??" I still have not used up my egg whites. Instead of getting lesser after CNY, it seemed to have increased...wondered if water has been accumulated in the egg whites...hmmm.

Anyway, I've decided to try out Financiers. I adopted the recipe from Tartelette. Instead of dark chocolates, I used white chocolates. Since she said can replace the almond meal with ground graham crackers, I replaced it with ground oat crackers. The result? You just can't get enough of them!! The recipe is really good! As I wasn't really a fan of white chocolates, I didn't want to let ground almonds go to waste. So I paired the white chocolates with ground crackers instead. Heehee...

Here is the recipe, modified slightly from Tartelette.
White Chocolate "Financiers"


150g semisweet white chocolate, chopped
150g heavy cream
50g icing sugar
60g unsalted butter (melted)
40g plain flour
40g ground graham crackers
1/2tsp baking powder
105g egg whites (from 3 small eggs)

1. In a heavy bottom saucepan, heat the cream to boiling point, pour over the chocolate and let sit for 2 minutes. Gently stir to melt the chocolate and cream together until smooth.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the powdered sugar, flour, crackers, baking powder.
3. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites for a minute, just to break them up. Add them to the flour mixture carefully, before they are completely incorporated, add the melted butter.
4. Finally, fold in the chocolate/cream mixture and fold until smooth.
5. Divide the batter into the greased moulds (any moulds you like. I used madeleine moulds & small silicone cupcake moulds)
6. Bake at 180C for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.
7. Cool for 5 minutes before you unmould them.
