When is a blueberry muffin not a blueberry muffin?

Blueberry financier
If you ever get tired of blueberry muffins, Serious Eats has an alternative – a Blueberry Breakfast Financier. To quote, “Financiers are essentially French teacakes. But the dainty proportions and restrained sweetness of the little almond-flavored cakes always struck me as somewhat akin to an all-American mini-muffin. Zut! I know I shouldn’t even say such a thing, and I know there are plenty of differences that a Frenchman could extrapolate on at length, but that didn’t stop me from thinking that, with a few tweaks, they would be the perfect breakfast sweet.”

You can check out the recipe here. However, if you’d still prefer a classic blueberry muffin, check out all the muffin books we’ve indexed.
