Time to Celebrate – 200th Post! {Recipe – Honey Financiers}

This post is a little late as I wanted to make something special. Not just because it’s the weekend and we all could do with a pick me up from the week we just had. No, I wanted to make something special as this is my 200th post on this blog. Now for the super hard core bloggers out there, that won’t seem like a lot. To me that seems like a milestone that needs celebrating.

Over the last 200 posts, I have eaten at some of the greatest restaurants, travelled the world and covered my kitchen repetitively in flour and icing sugar. I’m lucky that I get to share with everyone my adventures in to the ever exciting world of food and fun. Here’s to 200 more and then some!

  2. Pour the mixture into the prepared tins until full and bake until 30 mins until golden and test with a skewer until it comes out clean. Leave to cool.
  3. Mix the icing sugar with the raspberry extract until smooth, you might need a few drops of water to loosen the icing. Pour the icing over these little cuties and serve.
