Matcha Financier


A really really easy bake without the need for a mixer of whatever not! Just stir with your wooden spoon! HOW EASY! I like this fuss-free bake for days when I just need to eat some love and get some love into my tummy IMMEDIATELY (+ max 45 mins. hehehe)

This is how your crumble should NOT look like. way too many butter clumps, yours should look like coarse bread crumbs!

I NEED TO PUT A DISCLAIMER THAT THE CRUMBLE LOOKS DIFFERENT FROM BEFORE I PUT INTO THE OVEN AND AFTER BECAUSE: I had too much butter in my first batch of crumble and it melted and melded with the financier batter. So, I made the crumble again with less butter, topped it again and baked it again. So if yours melt, it means it has too much butter! I didn't measure my crumble but I tried my best to estimate the second batch and it turned out like how I like it to be because it provided some form of small crispy crunch.
