Description

Simple yet exquisite, Raspberry Financiers are lovely little French almond cakes with crispy exteriors and insides as soft as a pillow. Surprisingly quick and easy to make.


Ingredients

Scale
  • ¾ cup ground almonds ((3oz, 85g))
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour ((3.6oz, 102g))
  • ¾ cup sugar ((5.25oz, 92g))
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened (3oz, 85g))
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 large egg whites ((3oz, 85g))
  • 1 pint raspberries (or blueberries, fresh or frozen)
  • ½ cup sliced almonds (for sprinkling on top)
  • Powdered (icing sugar, for dusting)
  • 7 4- inch nonstick tart molds (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or buttered and floured.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix ground almonds, flour, sugar, and lemon zest until combined.
  3. Add the softened butter and beat for 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl.
  4. Add the vanilla. Add the egg whites, one by one, beating for 2 minutes and scraping down the bowl after each addition.
  5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared molds. Place on raspberries and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
  6. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes, but depending on the mold/pan used.
  7. Unmold the cakes, let cool on a cooling rack.
  8. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
  9. Financiers are the very best when eaten on the day they are baked.
