I bought a life-changing cake today.
My local deli/cafe always has little home-baked treats; brownies, madeleines, cupcakes and so on and so forth. But I'd never had a financier before today. My god, they are so awesome. They're similar to a madeleine, but a richer, crumblier texture and a much deeper flavour. What a glorious little treat.
How have I not been aware of them before now? I feel I've wasted years of my life...
i don't know what a madeleine is like. Must google. And a financier? That's a little cake or cookie?
I've yet to try "red velvet" cake. I have a feeling i'll love it. Just what i need!
