Financier loaf

4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
7 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp peach jam
3 tbsp boiling water
2 tbsp cocoa
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp butter

Butter a small (8x4 inch) loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, beat egg whites until hard peaks form, then slowly add sugar, continuing to beat, until the egg whites become shiny. Sift in the flour, then add meted butter, and beat for an additional 1-2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan, bake until toothpick comes out clean (about 25minutes). Turn loaf out of pan, and brush with the mixture of peach jam and boiling water. Let the loaf cool and soak in the jam. When loaf is cool, cover with chocolate.

To make chocolate icing, mix cocoa with sugar, then add water in a small pan. Heat, stirring, then add 2 tbsp butter and melt.
