Blueberry friands


100g butter, melted and cooled

125g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

25g plain flour

85g ground almond

3medium egg whites

Zest of 1 lemon

85g blueberries


Step 1

Preheat the oven to fan 180C or conventional 200C/gas 6. Generously butter six non-stick friand or muffin tins. Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

Step 2

Sift the icing sugar and flour into a bowl. Add the ground almonds and mix everything between your fingers.

Step 3

Whisk the egg whites in another bowl until they form a light, floppy foam. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, tip in the egg whites and lemon rind, then lightly stir in the butter to form a soft batter.

Step 4

Divide the batter among the tins, a large serving spoon is perfect for this job. Sprinkle a handful of blueberries over each cake and bake for 15-20 minutes until just firm to the touch and golden brown.

Step 5

Cool in the tins for 5 minutes, then turn out and cool on a wire rack. To serve, dust lightly with icing sugar. Enjoy!
