These chocolate friands are very flavorful with almond meal, cocoa powder and orange zest. The addition of kumquat marmalade in the middle did indeed help to enhance the flavour of the chocolate friand. I kept the leftover friands in an airtight container, overnight in room temperature and they even tasted better the next day.
