When making friands, there’s a technique for beating the egg whites so they are easy to incorporate into the mixture. Don’t beat them to a thick foam, just whisk them until frothy bubbles begin to appear.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
spray oil
1 1/2 cups icing sugar, sifted
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup plain flour
90g light margarine, melted
100ml low-fat milk
6 egg whites
1 cup frozen mixed berries

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to moderate, 180ºC. Spray a 12-hole muffin or friand pan with oil.
  2. Combine the icing sugar, breadcrumbs and flour in a large mixing bowl. Blend in the melted margarine and milk, stirring gently until just combined.
  3. In a clean bowl, lightly whisk the egg whites until frothy. Using a metal spoon, lightly fold the egg whites through the breadcrumb mixture. Gently fold in the berries.
  4. Spoon the mixture evenly into the friand pan. Bake for 25–30 minutes until cooked when a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack and leaving to cool completely.

Variations

  • –If you prefer, use wholemeal breadcrumbs. It’s easy to make your own using a few slices of stale wholemeal bread – simply process in a food processor or blender to the right fine consistency.

    –Replace the mixed berries with the same amount of chopped apple, pear, dried fruit, fruit and nuts – or whatever takes your fancy.

    –For an interesting flavour variation, replace the milk with a flavoured tea.
