Raspberry Financier

Raspberry financier - Lilie Bakery

A family cake full of sweetness: the Raspberry Financier ! With its good almond flavor and pieces of fruit, it can be prepared in just a few minutes (no rest time). We love its very soft texture with almond powder and its very delicious little brown butter...

What you will like about this raspberry financier

  • flavors : the ideal duo of sweet almond and tangy raspberries, enhanced by a little touch of vanilla.
  • texture : the financier is very soft and fruity too with its raspberries spread over the cake.
  • difficulty level : very easy to prepare! To bake this family-size raspberry financier, I use a simple 20 cm round mold.

Precision on the choice of ingredients

  • butter : for these financiers, I use unsalted butter, which I melt into brown butter (everything is explained in the recipe). The browned butter is great for adding a delicious taste to the financiers in general as in my recipe for almond financiers cakes.
  • almond meal : this is the key ingredient of this raspberry financier because it brings the almond taste and the soft texture. This almond powder is mixed with a little flour to hold the cake together.
  • icing sugar : I use icing sugar here because it melts easily into the batter, especially when you add the unbeaten egg whites.
  • vanilla : it is a flavor enhancer in this recipe, ideal for highlighting the almond.
  • raspberries : I use fresh raspberries because frozen raspberries are not very pretty once defrosted and also release a lot of juice. The good thing about fresh raspberries is that they don't add any liquid to the cake.

How to make a raspberry financier?

  1. We prepare the peanut butter in a pot
  2. We leave it warm for the rest
  3. We sift together dry ingredients
  4. We relax lightly egg whites
  5. We add them with dry ingredients
  6. We incorporate vanilla
  7. We add the peanut butter in the dough
  8. We pour the dough in a round mold
  9. We end by depositing raspberries fresh
  10. We bake the raspberry financier!

NB: the complete list of ingredients and the detailed recipe are given at the bottom of the page.

My advice for successful raspberry financing

  • do not let your brown butter darken in the pan: as soon as the amber color appears, stop the cooking by pouring it into a bowl through a strainer.
  • use a spatula/spatula to incorporate the egg whites with dry ingredients, it's easier than a whisk because the dough is quite sticky.
  • when adding the raspberries : don't push them into the dough, just place them on top. During cooking, it integrates naturally into the cake.
  • to know if the cake is cooked : you can rely on the golden color of the raspberry financier first and then on a wooden pick inserted in the center of the cake. If it comes out dry or with a few crumbs, it is cooked!

How to store the raspberry financier?

The raspberry financier can be stored at room temperature, in an airtight container (or under a hood) for about 3-4 days, away from the heat.

I do not recommend putting it in the refrigerator because with the butter it contains, it would lose its softness, which would be a shame.

Raspberry Financier, The Easy Recipe

A very soft family size financier, with a good almond taste, with raspberries for a fruity and tangy touch! (It can also be prepared in small individual financiers)
Prep time20 minutes
Cook time35 minutes
Total55 minutes
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: French
Keyword: Financial
Yield: 7


  • 110 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g almond meal
  • 50 g all-purpose flour
  • 130 g icing sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 Egg whites at room temperature
  • 0,5 cc natural vanilla extract
  • 120 g fresh raspberries


  • Prepare the brown butter: in a small saucepan, heat the butter in pieces over very low heat, stirring, until it takes on an amber-caramel hue. Immediately remove from heat, sieve to remove the foam and pour into a bowl to stop the cooking. Let cool for the rest of the recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 180° traditional heat. Butter and flour a 20cm mold. Tap the mold to remove excess flour.
  • In a large container, sift the ground almonds, flour, icing sugar and salt. Mix everything for a fine and homogeneous texture.
  • Separately, relax the whites with a fork (without whipping them). Then add them to the dry ingredients with the vanilla extract. Mix with a spatula/maryse. There should be no lumps. Do not overmix, just what is necessary.
  • Finish by adding the warm brown butter, incorporate by mixing gently with the spatula/maryse.
  • Pour the batter into the mold. Place the fresh raspberries on top, without pressing them in (hole down).
  • Bake for around 30-35 minutes (adjust depending on your oven, as they are all different). The corners and top of the financier should take on a golden hue.
  • NB: you can use individual financier molds, in this case you will have to reduce the cooking time to around 13-15 minutes.
  • Leave to cool in the mold then unmold on a wire rack until completely cooled.


The raspberry financier can be kept at room temperature, in an airtight container (or under a cover) for approximately 3-4 days, away from heat.
I do not recommend the refrigerator because it will harden.

      Hello Sarah, I do not recommend convection heat, because it cooks harder. It is better to follow my instructions, as this would change the cooking times behind. See you soon :)

    Many thanks Lilie for this excellent and simple recipe. I made the almond powder myself from real almonds purchased in bulk, it avoids plastic and it is so much better, especially in terms of material and taste. No storage problem, everything came out in one go.

      Thanks Pops! Very good idea to make your own almond powder, it just takes a little more preparation time, that's all. See you soon :)
