Friands are healthy cakes that are made of almond meal and egg whites. There was a lot of leftover egg whites from baking kueh lapis during the lunar new year that I used them to make friands or angle cake.
Fruits are added to the cake which I usually used fresh raspberries when they are in season or canned blueberries. The recipe from Donna Hay is a success.
Ingredients : 125g butter, 1 cup almond meal, 1.5 cup icing sugar, 3/4 cup all purpose sifted flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 5 egg whites and 1/2 cup fruits.
Pre-heat oven to 180C. Place butter in a saucepan over low heat and cook until melted and a very light golden colour. Set aside.
Add egg whites to dry ingredients to combine
Lastly add in butter.
Spoon mixture into each tin and decorate fruits over the top. Bake for 15-20 mins or until golden brown and springy to the touch but moist in the centre.
