Lemon Friands

50 comments

I love Friand because of its size, healthy because using egg whites and lastly they are easy to make. I've made friands before, Pineapple Friands and Blueberry Lemon Friands. For today's post is Lemon Friands and don't you think they are cute and pretty?   I've to thank my friend from Australia who had brought this Friand pan to me when she was here for a short holiday. This pan has contains 20 oval shaped holes instead of the normal 12 and as they are smaller in size therefore the cakes have been reduced to 20.
The French word 'Friand' means dainty and these are so cute, soft and moist, so good to eat them with your fingers. This Lemon Friand recipe was adapted from Taste.com. You can also bake these small cakes with some berries or fruits and use a small muffin pan instead if you don't have a Friand pan at home. Great to serve them at anytime of the day. 




Lemon Friands


    Ingredients
     95g Butter
     60g Plain flour
     70g Icing sugar
     60g Almond meal (ground almond)
     3 Egg whites (105g)
     Grated zest of 1 lemon






     Method:
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Melt butter and use a little to grease 20 holes mini friand pan. 12 holes for bigger friand pan.
  • Sift the flour and icing sugar into a large bowl, then stir in the lemon zest and almond meal.
  • Place egg whites in a small bowl and lightly froth with a fork. Add to dry ingredients with melted butter, stirring until completely combined.
  • Fill each friand hole two-thirds full/ Bake for about 20 minutes until golden.  Remove from the oven, leave in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

  1. Ann your friands look so lovely. I have this friand pan too but every time I removed the friands, the sides tend to break. What is your secret? Did you grease the pan beforehand? I didn't and I suspect I should even though it is a non stick pan.

    1. Hi Veronica, Yes, must grease the pan first. Can use butter or cooking spray so that the cakes can come out nicely.

  30. Hello Ann, I tried your recipe and yes not difficult to make. The challenge was some stick to the sides and difficult to remove though I've greased the pan. Hee hee not sure why. Nonetheless my big boy likes them and he finished almost halve of them. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Good morning,
      Glad to hear your big boy enjoyed the cake :)
      I used cooking spray to grease the pan but you can grease the pan with more butter next time.
