Chocolate and Blueberry Financiers

Slowly, the start of the school year is looming on the horizon. It will also be the return of the blog that I somewhat neglected during the summer. Between the holidays, the family, the heat and all the recipes made for my clients, I had a little trouble being as present as usual and preparing and photographing new recipes.

Of course, I baked some lovely cakes. Those who follow me on instagram must know what I’m talking about. But, as I knew you too were on vacation, away from the kitchen, I chose to put them on hold.
The start of the school year will therefore be greedy!

Today, I offer you a very simple recipe, to be cooked preferably in the morning, when the heat is still bearable. These little chocolate and blueberry financiers will be perfect for snacking on during the afternoon, as an accompaniment to a nice cold drink. I also accompany them with a good book.
I picked these blueberries during my weekend in Cantal. It’s really painful to pick, but how good is it! They make these little chocolate financiers completely irresistible.

Chocolate and Blueberry Financiers:

80g icing sugar
35g ground almonds
30g spelled flour (T80)
1 small pinch of fleur de sel
90g egg whites (3)
45g butter
30g chocolate (70%)
80 g blueberries (wild)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Mix the icing sugar, ground almonds, flour and fleur de sel.
Add the unbeaten whites twice. To mix together.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan, until it is “nutty”.
Off the heat, add the chocolate and stir until melted.

Add the chocolate to the mixture. To mix together.
Add blueberries. Mix gently.

Fill to 3/4 a dozen small molds. and cook for about 13 minutes.

To finish: spelled flour is really very nice in these little financiers. You can also use regular flour, although the result will be a little different.

My cute little mussels also come from Cantal, just like blueberries. I found them in a garage sale.
Don’t forget to grease them.
Silicone molds, in the shape you want, will also be perfect. They are simply less photogenic.

There are wild blueberries in the Grands Frais. It’s much simpler than picking them.

If I was in Cantal, it was also to participate with my blogger friends, Johanna, Stephanie and Vero at the blue festival in Riom-ès-Montagnes. If you are curious to see what we cooked and the atmosphere, Stéphanie made a video that can be viewed here.

Finally, for the book that accompanies these financiers, I recommend Franck Thillieza thriller author who has been taking up my spare time for a few months now.
