One of my hubby's fave treat is a friand...its one of those fancy lil french cake that is really yummy, moist and scrumptious! The main ingredients are almond meal, egg whites, butter, and icing sugar.
This weekend we decided to make them seeing that we have all the ingredient handy in the pantry.
If you would like to try making them, we have put the recipe in our recipe sections HERE.
Today I had the pleasure of having of our friand with a chrysanthemum tea, whereas hubby decided coffee is the best way to enjoy them :)
There is really not much to it, the key is to make sure you whisk the egg whites until they form a soft peak and then mix it with the dry ingredients.
If you don't have any lemon then you can just leave that ingredient out and make just a blueberry friand, and if you don't have any blueberry and just want to make lemon friand you can do the same, they will still come our delicious either way :)
Here they are fresh out of the oven.
Make sure you apply a cake release batter generously around the pan, this will ensure they will come out easily after they have rested and cool. Ours came out perfectly without any effort at all :)
You can serve them on their own or they are a perfect compliment to your tea or coffee.
Here is my lovely assistant, showing off the finishing result :P

Hope everyone is having a restful weekend!
