A batch of baked raspberry financiers in a mini muffin mold

5 from 5 reviews

If you're looking for the perfect afternoon snack, look no further: these raspberry financiers are what you need. They are light and airy with a touch of buttery sweetness from the almond flour. Fresh raspberries on top bring tartness and sweetness at the same time. It is hard to stop eating these!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 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 (note #1)
  • 7 oz. (200 g) unsalted butter
  • 24 fresh raspberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 395 degrees F/200 degrees C. Melt and cook the butter over low to medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes to obtain the brown butter. It will start to foam, then to brown, making brown milk solids. Let it cool.
  2. Mix almond flour, icing sugar, and all-purpose flour with a hand whisk. In a separate bowl, lightly beat egg whites until foamy. Add egg whites to the main preparation and mix with the whisk. Pour the cooled brown butter and mix with the whisk again.
  3. Butter and flour cavities of a mini muffin mold. Pour the butter into financier molds almost to the top. Garnish each financier with a fresh raspberry. Bake for 20 minutes until slightly puffed, and the edges are golden. 
  4. Remove the financiers from the muffin mold immediately and let cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, sprinkle cakes with icing (powdered) sugar if desired. 

Notes

  1. 200 g egg whites approximately equal to 6 raw fresh egg whites from large-sized chicken eggs.
  2. Don't filter the brown butter: it is all right to use it with the foam and brown milk solids.
  3. If you use silicone mini molds or a silicone financier mold, there is no need to grease and flour them.
  4. Store financiers in an airtight container for up to 7 days. You can freeze them for up to 2 months.
