Apricot jam friands

Apricot jam friands / Friands de geléia de damasco

After reading that the lovely Taranii thought I was from Oceania because of the massive amounts of friands around here I might be ready to admit I’m addicted to these delicious and tender little cakes... :)

This recipe comes from DH mag #35 and is part of my “finishing up a jar of almond jam” project. :)

Apricot jam friands]
from Donna Hay magazine

½ cup + ½ tablespoon (75g) all purpose flour, sifted
1 ½ cups (210g) icing sugar, sifted
1 cup (100g) almond meal (ground almonds)
4 egg whites
180g unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup apricot jam

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Butter ten ½ cup (120ml) capacity fluted pans.
Place the flour, icing sugar and almond meal in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the center, add the egg whites, butter and vanilla and stir well to combine. Divide batter among prepared pans. Top each with ½ teaspoon of jam and bake for 10-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Allow to cool in the pans for 5 minutes then carefully unmold onto a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar before serving, if desired.

Makes 10 – I halved the recipe above, used 1/3 cup (80ml) capacity muffins pans and got 7 friands
