The combination of toasted sesame and browned butter in this apple financier make it a delightfully savory and sweet dessert. Thinly sliced apples on top add a delicate textural contrast to the crumb of this buttery cake. This easy dessert is an elegant show-stopper, especially when baked in a tart pan.
For the cake:
⅞ cup (14 tbsp.) butter
⅓ cup + 2 tbsp. white sesame seeds
⅓ cup all purpose flour
1 cup almond flour
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
For the topping:
1-1.5 apples, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. white sesame seeds
1 tbsp. raw sugar
