Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200deg.
  2. C.
  3. Lightly grease 12 friand moulds.
  4. If friand moulds are not available, muffin tins can be used.
  5. Place dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Add egg whites and butter and stir again until the mixture is smooth.
  7. Spoon evenly into friand moulds and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tops have started to crack and the edges are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest in moulds for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire cake rack to cool completely.
  9. Dust friands with icing sugar before serving.
  10. Variations: Before baking, friands can be topped with raspberries, rhubarb or blueberries.
  11. 2 tablespoons poppy seeds and the grated rind of 2 lemons, oranges or mandarins can be added to the dry ingredients.
  12. If using citrus in the mixture, a glaze of melted marmalade can be brushed on the cooked friands whilst they are cooling.
  13. Friands are best eaten on the day they are made.
