Friands are one of those delectable little morsels for which cafes seem to charge an arm and a leg.  Don't despair though - you can easily make these little darlings for a fraction of the cost at home and with CC it is just so easy. They are quick to make and wonderful to eat!


6 egg whites
180g butter diced
1 cup almond meal
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
100g white chocolate bits (or coarsely chopped white chocolate)
100g fresh or frozen raspberries
1 tsp icing sugar extra for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees. Grease 8 half cup friand pans.
2. Place butter in the jug with the kneading blade. Speed 4 Temp 90 Time 2.30
3. When butter is melted add all ingredients (dry ingredients first).
4. Select Pastry P1 50 seconds.  With 20 seconds to go, stop the machine and scrape down the sides. Resume program.
5. Place batter into friand pans, fill to 1/4 cm from the top.
6. Place in the oven for 7 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and place raspberries on top of friands. If using frozen do not defrost first or the juice will bleed into the batter.
8. Return to the oven and cook for a further 12-15 minutes or until the friands are firm to touch.
9. Remove from the oven and carefully use a butter knife to lift the friands out onto a cooling rack.
10. When cool, dust with icing sugar.

NOTE - if you don't have a friand pan, you can use a cupcake pan.
