If you haven’t heard of Friands before, they are small almond cakes baked in oval molds. The word “friand” means “a tasty thing” in French – you know they’re going to be good with a name like that.

The friands are best served warm, when cold, we microwave ours for 30 seconds. Store the friands in the fridge for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.

The recipe makes 12 serves, 1 serving is 1 friand.
