Saffron Financier

Valentine's financier

Sweet Passion
These tiny love shapes French tea cakes are soft and springy with a slightly domed top and a lovely golden brown crust. Take a bite and you can taste the moist subtle flavor of butter, saffron and almonds. The saffron flavour is beautiful. The name "financier" is said to derive from the traditional rectangular mold, which resembles a bar of gold. Another theory says that the cake became popular in the financial district of Paris surrounding La Bourse du Commerce. This lovely heart shapes are just as good as it taste:)
