pineapple1 It’s really getting hot here in Dubai; hot and humid. One just does not like to get out of the house that hot it is! In such a climate I do not like to eat too heavy, more fruits and fruit based dishes. Luckily there where some great Pineapples from South Africa in the market, fantastic pink Grapefruits and ripe Bananas. I love bananas, ripe to over ripe yellow bananas. I prepared therefore Financiers with Pineapple, Bananas, ground Almond and burned Butter. Taking those out of the oven the entire house smelled wonderfully of fresh baked Financier. Cooking the Pineapple in a broth of white wine, honey, sugar and lime zest underlined the Pineapple junks with a prickly zest of the wine and Lime. pineapple3 Ingredients for Financier: 400 gram Almond Powder 150 gram Icing Sugar 100 gram Banana Puree 120 gram Pineapple cubes 140 gram Egg white 050 gram Flour 035 gram Baking Powder 110 gram Butter, burned brown Method: Combine the Almond powder with Icing sugar, flour and baking powder.
