It’s no secret I like to bake. The people are work are getting to know this too. I would be baking tonight… well the night is still young, I still MIGHT bake.
A few weeks ago, I made a double batch of Bill Granger’s friands to use up some eggs. When making the second batch I ran out of almond meal and substituted in hazelnut meal instead. The hazelnut ones tasted WAY better than the almond ones. They were a HUGE hit, with a co-worker admitting to eating four throughout the course of the day. Even picky eater, but all around hilarious girl Rachel (another co-worker), really like the hazelnut ones, even if she didn’t touch the berries on top!
Make them, you’ll love them! Have a great weekend peeps! x
- 135g ground hazelnuts (hazelnut meal)
- 220g icing sugar, sifted
- 85g plain flour, sifted
- 8 egg whites
- 150g unsalted butter, melted
- 115g mixed berries (frozen are fine)
- icing sugar, extra for dusting
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and flour a non-stick 12 hole friand tin. Mix together the ground hazelnuts, icing sugar and flour. Stir in the egg whites until just combined. Stir in the melted butter.
- Pour the batter into the tins. Arrange the berries on top of each friand.
- Bake for 25-30 mins or until pale and golden. The friands should spring back when touched. Remove from the oven onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with extra icing sugar and stir in an airtight container.
