Friands are also known as financiers and originate from France. They are beautiful and delicious bite-lets that work great as part of an afternoon tea or for serving with coffee. We’ve paired our friands with gooseberry and hazelnut but they work well with lots of different fruits such as blueberry, plum and raspberries.
Make sure you whisk up the egg whites really well as this is the only aeration that takes place. There’s no self-raising flour or raising agent anywhere else.
You can purchase a friand mould online but if you can’t find one or there’s no time, you can also use a muffin tin. Just make sure you grease your moulds well so that the tasty friands don’t stick during cooking.
If you can’t find gooseberries, use sliced Victoria plums instead
