  1. So I have not heard of Friands but I am always game for little, lightly sweetened cakes! I will give this a try. Is there any reason I can’t use regular vanilla extract?

  2. Amazing !!! Easy to make, absolutely delicious. A real treat with a cup of tea. Will definitely be making again and may add in some raspberries to mix it up as these will become a weekly bake I imagine.
