Dark Chocolate Mini Friands


220g icing sugar, sift
75g plain flour
185g butter, melted
6 egg whites, whisked until foamy
100g almond meal
20g dessicated coconut (optional)
zest of 1 orange (optional)
dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.  Grease two 12-holes mini muffin pan.
  • Combine flour, almond meal, dessicated coconut and icing sugar in a bowl.  
  • Add melted butter and egg whites into the flour mixture and whisk until just combined.
  • Divide mixture among the muffin holes then spoon some chopped chocolate into the centre of each friand. 
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until browned and cooked when tested.
  • Allow friands to stand in the pans for about 5 minutes, then run a small rubber spatula around the outside of each friand to loosen before turning them onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Dust friands with cocoa powder and icing sugar when served (optional).
