Strawberry Friands

(Makes  10)


1½ cups (240g) icing mixture, sifted
½ cup (75g) plain flour, sifted
185g butter, melted
6 egg whites
1 cup (125g) almond meal
100g fresh/frozen strawberries (or any other berries)
2 tbsp desiccated coconut (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position so that the friands brown evenly.
  • Grease 10 friand pan holes.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk egg whites lightly until foamy which takes about half a minute.
  • Add the melted butter, almond meal, icing sugar, desiccated coconut and flour.  Whisk until just combined.
  • Divide mixture among the friand pan holes, then push a strawberry into the centre of each friand.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until browned and cooked when tested.
  • Remove friands from the oven and allow to stand in the pan for 5 minutes. Run a small rubber spatula around the outside of each friand to loosen before turning them onto a wire rack to cool.


Tip: Choc-chips, almond flakes and other dried fruits can be added into plain friands
