Gluten-free sweet almond friands
( MAKES 9 )
Great for using up those frozen egg whites. The friands keep moist for several days or they can be frozen.
- Preheat the oven to 200C. Lightly oil a 9-hole friand pan.
- Combine the ground almonds, icing sugar, baking mix and grated lemon rind in a bowl. Add the unbeaten egg whites and stir to mix well. Stir in the oil.
- Spoon the mixture evenly into the friend holes to about ½ - ⅔ full. Sprinkle lightly with the sliced almonds.
- Bake for about 20 minutes or until the mixture comes away from the sides. Turn out on a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar.
