Very simple, very nice. No whisking, no folding, just simple stirring required. And you can substitute the blueberries with any type of berry, or even choc-chips or slivered almonds. This one is definitely a good thing!
- 1 cup almond meal (100g)
- 1 1⁄4 cups icing sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 5 egg whites
- 125 g butter or 125 g margarine
- 3⁄4 cup plain flour
- 1⁄3 cup blueberries
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Melt the butter either in the microwave or in a saucepan over low heat on the stove. Set aside.
- Sift the icing sugar, flour and baking powder together into a large bowl. Add the almond meal and stir to combine.
- Add the egg whites and stir to combine.
- Add the butter and stir to combine. Don't worry if there are a few lumps, just make sure there aren't too many. Mixture should be medium thick.
- Lightly grease 10 muffin cups of about 1/2-cup capacity. If your tray has 12, grease 10 and fill the remaining cups with water.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons into each cup, then sprinkle 2-4 blueberries on top.
- Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until they spring back lightly when touched.
Great recipe. Very easy. My mix made 12 in muffin pans and took a little longer to cook, 30 mins, . but my oven not the best
You said it...very simple, very nice! I made the recipe mostly as listed. I added the rind and juice of one lime (the rind to the dry ingredients and the juice to the egg whites before I mixed them in).I put the mixture into my 24-hole mini-muffin pan which it fit perfectly. Beautiful little mini-morsels which my 3 year old loves....this is definitely a keeper! Thanks very much for posting. (I'll post a photo shortly.)
