Gluten Free Friand Slice

Turn fabulous French friands into a sensational slice, with this gluten free recipe. The slice makes an impressive addition to afternoon tea, or a simple, delicious dessert served warm with cream.

A delicious sweet treat


100g ground almonds
180g icing sugar, sifted
50g gluten free plain flour
5 egg whites (not beaten)
Rind of 1 lemon
180g unsalted butter, melted
150g frozen berries

Preheat the oven to 180℃. Line a slice tray (I use 20cmx20cm) with baking paper. In a bowl combine almonds, sifted icing sugar and flour. Add lemon rind, egg whites and mix until just combined. Add slightly cooled melted butter and stir until smooth. Pour into the prepared tray and sprinkle with frozen berries. Bake for approx 35 minutes until golden and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool slightly in the tray. Dust with icing sugar and slice to serve.
Notes: The recipe can be used to make approx 12 individual friands. Reduce cooking time to 25-30 mins. If desired, substitute berries for other fruits such as sliced apple, or nuts – hazelnuts, pecan, almond work well.
