"Albert Adrià of the legendary El Bulli was the first to develop the idea of cooking a light-as-a-feather cake in the microwave, a technique that works equally as well with this almond financier recipe - warm cake straight from the 'oven'," says Quade. "Salted liquorice is my preferred snack in the kitchen (I can thank my Danish genes for that) and pairing it with kaffir lime helps to balance the saltiness on the palate. Crystallising the blueberries is optional, but only takes a second and looks beautiful on the plate."
Note We've increased the gelatine in the jelly for faster setting, but if you have more time you can make the jelly a day ahead using half the amount.
