Hazelnut and strawberry friands

Nom Nom. A little batch of sweet deliciousness.

This is my recipe,  I hope you like it. 


2 egg whites

60g melted butter 

1/3 cup plain flour

1/3 cup hazelnut meal

1/2 cup pure icing sugar

To decorate:

A few strawberries (or you could use blueberries) 

A little jam (I used strawberry to match) 


Best egg whites until foamy and slightly stiff 

Add the rest of the ingredients.

Lightly spray a silicone mini muffin tray, divide between,  mine had 7 holes. 

Slice the strawberries lengthwise. 

Gobble the end parts and use the pretty flat parts for the top of the friand.

Make in a moderately hot oven approximately 15 minutes until just browning. 

Microwave about 1 tablespoon of jam to make it runny. 30-45 seconds should be about right.  Be careful that stuff can burn you. 

Use a knife and spread a small amount over the top as a glaze. 

Eat warm.

I think next time I’ll try a slice of apple and add a bit of cinnamon to the batter. Not sure if it’ll work but pretty sure it would. 

Gluten Free? 

Use GF pain flour.  I think the texture will be fine as hazelnut it’s fairly textured.
