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. 


  • 150 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 180° C (approx 350° F).
  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.
