Default Friand Recipe to die for

These are just soooooo delicious and so easy to make, only tip I have is be sure the butter is cooled before using, my first ones were not very risen and very heavy but these second attempts were simply perfect, if I do say so myself, I have Nigella Lawson to thank though LOL

friands (also known as financiers) are made with almond meal instead of flour and are easy to make plus they only take 25 minutes to bake too and they taste devine, but then I love almonds LOL and that almond taste. once you have the batter too you can do all sorts of variations. Love it!!

You can find this recipe here

I added just one raspberry (mine were frozen ones) on top of each before baking

oh and that's my messy desktop below in the pics LOL excuse the clutter LOL

Good Lord woman! You have me salivating here. Those look divine. I can't get TV over here, most US shows are blocked (or in German) so I download what I can off the web. I can download Master Chef Australia. I'm totally caught up in it!

With friands like that, you can go on MC3 and I'll soooooooo root for you!

Smooches,

T

Walmart sells it online, so they might also have it in your local Walmart. They do not carry it in mine.

At almost $10 a pound it's pricey, but of course being made out of ground almonds it would be. Bet they carry this stuff in your local Health Food store.

They sell Almond Meal in our baking aisle at the grocery store here in Australia, I imagine it would be in a similar place for you Penny. It is ground almonds so I guess you could grind your own if you can't fine the meal.
