Blueberry Friands @ Saturday, December 01, 2012
My first encounter with these amazing friands was while I was working at the expo center a couple months ago at a spiritual seminar, lunch and snacks was provided by the cater and for afternoon tea they had these amazing shortbread like thing but with raspberries instead of blueberries, since then I've been trying to figure out what they are, as no one knew what they were called. Eventually I stumbled upon a picture of it and found out they were called 'friands' if you make it in a tray it becomes a slice, but more often is made in cupcake or muffin tins. It's pretty much a cupcake but more expensive, due to the use of almond meal (very popular in demand due to the rise of macarons).
This recipe makes 12 muffins or 24 cupcakes. We haven't experimented with a bread loaf tin yet.
4 egg whites
100g unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp milk
½ tsp vanilla extract
125g almond meal
160g icing sugar
50g self-raising flour
1 vanilla bean
