Raspberry financiers/Cupcakes


I have been wanting to make this for long, but I don't have a financiers mould, and I coudn't wait any longer so I made them in muffin pan which was also really a excelent idea...... don't know why I didn't do this idea before than waiting to buy the special pans.

I love this finacier/cupcake as they are not too sweet and loved the raspberries inside them.



Ingridients.
4 egg white whipped up till snow
80 gm sugar
100 gm almond powder
30 ml Amaretto drink ( idf you don't have don't worry)
80 gm flour
100 gm butter, melt the butter until it turns to a rich brown color. Strain it and let cool to room temperature.
200 gm Raspberry

Method:
Mix the flour, almond powder and sugar in a bowl.
Add melted butter and the amaretto to it and stir.
Fold in the egg whites too it.Add the raspberries to it and gently stir it to make sure you don't break them up.
Spoon them into the muffin tins.

Preheat the oven to 180°c and bake them for 20 minutes.
Let them cool on a wire rack and serve the with whipped cream.
