Lemony Prune Friands


I had some egg whites left from making ice cream and not to put them to waste, I made these lemony friands for afternoon tea.  Tossed in some pitted prunes to enhance the flavour and taste.





Recipe for Lemony Prune Friands

    Ingredients

    • 100 gm melted butter, cooled
    • 125 gm icing sugar
    • 40 gm plain flour 
    • 70 gm almond meal 
    • 3 medium egg whites
    • Zest from 1 lemon
    • 85 gm pitted prunes, chopped
    Method
    1. Lightly grease and flour the Friand pan.
    2. Sift the icing sugar and flour into a bowl, add almond meal, mix well.
    3. Whisk egg whites till light and floppy.  Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, tip in the egg whites and lemon rind, then lightly stir in the melted butter to form a soft batter.
    4. Scoop the batter into the pan and sprinkle some chopped prunes over each cake.  Bake for 15 - 20 mins.
    5. Cool in the pan for about 5 mins. turn out and dust with icing sugar before serving.
    6. Yield :  9 Friands

  11. Hi Cheah! I will keep this recipe in mind for using up egg whites. Sometimes I end up throwing them away. What a waste!
