5 from 5 reviews

Raspberry financiers are small, moist almond cakes made with brown butter and almond flour. Fresh raspberries on top bring tartness and sweetness at the same time. 


  • 1 1/3 cups (130 g) almond flour
  • 1 2/3 cups + 1 1/2 tablespoons (220 g) icing (powdered) sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 6 1/2 teaspoons (80 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup + 2 1/2 tablespoons (200 g) egg whites, room temperature (note #1)
  • 7 oz. (200 g) unsalted butter
  • 24 fresh raspberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 395°F (200°C). Butter and flour cavities of a nonstick mini muffin pan.

  2. To make the brown butter, melt and cook the butter in a small saucepan over low heat for 7 to 10 minutes. It will start to foam, then turn golden brown, making brown milk solids. Let it cool to room temperature.

  3. To make the financier batter, mix almond flour, icing sugar, and all-purpose flour in a large bowl with a hand whisk.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites with a hand mixer for 15-20 seconds until foamy.

  5. Add beaten egg whites to the flour mixture and mix with a hand whisk.

  6. Pour the browned butter and mix with a rubber spatula or a whisk.

  7. Pour batter into muffin cups almost to the top. Place a raspberry on top of each financier.

  8. Bake for 20 minutes until golden edges and cakes are slightly puffed. 

  9. Let the financiers rest in the pan for 3-5 minutes. Remove them from the mini muffin tin and let them cool on a cooling rack. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. 


  1. 200 g egg whites, approximately equal to 6 raw fresh egg whites from large-sized chicken eggs.
  2. Consult the beurre noisette recipe for step-by-step photographed explanations, helpful tips, and tricks.
  3. Avoid over-whisking egg whites.
  4. Don't filter the brown butter: brown milk solids bring an additional flavor.
