pistachio and raspberry financiers

These Pistachio and Raspberry Financiers will make you feel rich even if your savings account balance states otherwise. Nutty and brown buttery, they are decadent and just a little bit will do (although I could probably be quite greedy with them). Dorie makes financiers in mini muffin tins, but I happen to have a silicone bar mold, so to mimic the traditional shape, I used it here. I had the space so I popped three raspberries on top instead of just one– oh, the luxury! I like the way the zing from the berries contrasts with the richness of the cakes.

By the way, did you know I spent six years working as an investment banker before I quit and went to culinary school? It’s why I moved to New York after college. Unfortunately, we were more likely to be found eating cookies from the trading floor vending machine than these beauties.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Oh these are SO pretty! I do have the moulds but more often than not, use mini muffin tins (which make them easy for everyone) but now I have seen these I need to pull them out and use them again too! ❤

  2. These financiers are impressive looking and can’t beat the richness of these babies.

  3. We enjoyed the zing of the raspberries too! I love your story…from banking to baking! 🙂

  4. I love that ‘banking to baking’. I am looking forward to these, they seem to be a hit with all.
