Majestic snacks! Raspberry financier traybake
If you want your next party to be fit for a queen, serve these delicious snacks inspired by bites served at Buckingham Palace.
This glorious Raspberry financier traybake is best with a dusting of icing sugar
- 180 g butter, plus extra for greasing
- 180 g (6¼oz) golden caster sugar
- 80g (2¾oz) flour
- 100g (3½oz) ground almonds
- A little pinch of cinnamon
- 6 proteins
- 300 g fresh raspberries (keep 24 aside)
- Powdered sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4. Grease a 20 x 25 cm baking tin, 4 cm deep, and line with baking paper. You can use a brownie, madeleine, or muffin tin if desired. Melt the butter in a pan until it sizzles.
When it turns a nutty color, pour it into a pitcher. Mix the sugar, flour and ground almonds in a bowl and add the cinnamon. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks and fold into the flour with a large metal spoon.
Slowly pour in the cooled butter, folding until combined. Spread the raspberries over the bottom of the mold. Pour in the mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool and cut into bite-sized squares, top with a raspberry and dust with icing sugar.
