The small financiers cakes of Hugo & Victor


One of the best pastry shops in Paris has shared with us its recipe for financiers cakes that all the foodies are wild about, and here is how to go about it.


Mince the rooibos as finely as possible with the help of a pestle.

Then, sift it with the flour, the almond powder and the sugar.

Melt the butter until it’s nut brown, then add the honey.

With a spatula, progressively incorporate the egg whites with the sifted mix.

Add the melted butter and warmed honey to the previous mix.

Allow to sit for 6 hours in a cool place. Thanks to a piping bag, pour in a boat-shaped silicone mold.

Place 3 raspberries for each financier in the raw dough. Bake for about 40 minutes in an oven preheated to 170 °C (th. 5-6).
