Matcha Financier Cake (Lan, Paris)

Easy & delicious!  I don’t have much time, so I love simple, quick recipes.
Here is one I adapted from my fortune teller friend Jean-Philippe. 


  • 200 g sugar
  • 60 g flour
  • 100 g almond powder
  • 4 egg whites
  • 140 g melted salted butter
  • Vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of matcha (green tea) powder
  • Possible Variation: replace matcha with lemon or orange zest.


  1. Preheat oven to 240 degrees.
  2. Hand mix ingredients.
  3. Butter cake pan (can be round, square cake pan or individual financier molds).
  4. Bake until golden. It’s done if a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
