Rhubarb & Vanilla Friands to make the most of vivid pink forced rhubarb.
USING A MUFFIN PAN
The friand moulds are about 1/2 cup in capacity and are deeper than the standard muffin mould. So if you are using a muffin pan to make these friands, you may need to adjust the cooking time a little.
In France, it is common to find financiers sold in mini muffin shapes, often sold in little packets which are great to give as gifts. You can use this recipe to make about 20 mini muffins, but be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
USING OTHER BAKING MOULDS
To that end, you could make friands or financiers in any shape, but just adjust the cooking time accordingly. One of my favourite cafés in Zurich makes financiers in a small flat pie tin. There is something so welcoming about a cake in such a generous size!
All recipes on this website state temperatures for a regular oven (i.e. a conventional oven without fan). If you have a convection oven with a fan, please consult the manufacturer’s handbook on how to adjust the temperature and baking time accordingly.
