Almond and Strawberry Friands

A community recipe by

Friands are delicious little almond cakes, perfect for afternoon tea. They are a great way of using up leftover egg whites. You can use different sorts of meal instead of almond - e.g. hazelnut or pistachio, but I like almond best. Also you can use different fruit or put choc chips or whatever in... If you don't have a friand tin or friand pans, you can use a normal muffin tin. You can also make mini friands in a mini muffin tin - take about 15 minutes to cook.


Serves: Makes 12

  • 7 ounces melted butter
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 6 egg whites (beaten lightly)
  • 1½ cups confectioners' sugar plus extra to serve
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced strawberries
