Blueberry & Lemon Friands

These Friands are very easy to make and are a great snack between meals when you need something sweet to spark you up.

The mixture of blueberry and lemon works very well together to create a beautiful moist dessert.  It’s a subtle lemon taste, not overpowering at all.

I like them best with the top of the Friand cracking open a little rather than a perfect dome.  Dusted with icing sugar after they have cooled and you will want to eat them all at once!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 170° C (fan forced) or 190° C (conventional). I usually cook with fan forced
  2. Light grease a 12 hole non-stick Friand pan
  3. Cut small ovals of non-stick baking paper to line the bases. This can be fiddly and not really necessary if you grease the base enough. You might want to try either way to see what works best for you
  4. Sift the flour and icing sugar into a large bowl
  5. Add the lemon rind and almond meal and stir with a wooden spoon to combine evenly. Make a well in the centre.
  6. Add the egg whites and butter to the mixture and stir with wooden spoon until just combined.
  7. Fold through blueberries
  8. Spoon mixture into prepared trays. I generally fill hole to about 3/4, however you may fill more depending on the size of the Friand you want.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Keep watch around the 20 minute mark to gauge whether they are done or need a little extra time.
  10. Remove from oven and leave in pan for 5-10 minutes before turning out on to wire racks to cool
  11. Serve Friands dusted with icing. It's best to wait until you are serving to dust with icing. If you do it too far in advance the icing sugar just melts into the Friand.
