French food Friday - Jaffa friands
recipe and photo from here
This week everything that I have made has chocolate in it. Continuing with this theme, I am going to make some friands as I have a lot of eggs on hand.
I love friands as they they have a fabulous texture which is due to the ground almonds and egg whites. It is an Australian recipe and I have Australia on my mind today as I have a bouquet of mimosa in my hall which smells heavenly.
- 1 1/2 cups icing sugar mixture
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup almond meal (ground almonds)
- 1/2 cup plain flour
- 1 tablespoon finely grated orange rind

- 185g butter, melted, cooled
- Icing sugar mixture, to serve

Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Grease a 12-hole, 1/2 cup-capacity friand pan.
Step 2 Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add almond meal, flour and orange rind. Stir to combine. Make a well in centre. Add egg whites and butter. Stir to combine.
Step 3 Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in centre of 1 friand comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.
