This is it, right–high baking season? Yes, it is! And yay for that–of course you might call me biased, but okay, I’m fine with that especially if it involves cookie exchanges, baking days with friends and families. And of course now in this virtual world, I’ve partnered up with Gold Medal Flour for a virtual bake day.
A perfect pairing for me since their unbleached all purpose flour is a standard in my kitchen. So if you ever see flour in my recipes, know that I mean Gold Medal’s unbleached all purpose flour–anything else will be designated as such.
With that said, check out what I’m bringing to the virtual bake day–coconut and raspberry financiers. Oh, you will love this little French cake, comprised of just a few ingredients, this comes together easily and quickly. The only thing to keep in mind–keep a light hand when mixing. Other than that – make a lot. They go quickly and are great for gifting. Enjoy!
