Berries and Almond Friand Slice

Friday is here once again.. hubs flying back home tonight and i cant wait! whether i wanna admit it or not.. i need my fussy dessert eater around.. hes my talking buddy at home.. we can talk till the wee hr of the night without realising the time.. ahem ahem.. u do know that our wedding anniversary is around the corner right?? :op

Yesterday was one busy day for me .. was kaput.. baked layer prune cake only to find out that i got all my dates mixed up again.. that order was actually meant for 12th of May!!.. haishh.. Rima Rima..

I also baked pandan chiffon cake and also baked two types of friand.. why two types of friand?? err my fault.. didnt check and had baked my friand using bottom heat.. duhhhh!! i decided to bake it one more time and since i ran out of fresh raspberry.. i decided to use frozen blueberry and raspberry..

6 egg whites
155g unsalted butter - melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
180g ground almonds
240g icing sugar - sifted
75g self raising flour
250g raspberry or whatever kind of berries
25g flaked almonds
2tsp icing sugar - extra

Preheat oven 180C.. grease 8x12" rectangular pan, line base and long sides with baking paper, extending paper 5cm over sides

Place egg whites in medium bowl, whisk lightly with fork until combined. Add butter, milk, extract, ground almonds, sifted icing sugar and flour, stir until combined. Pour batter into pan, top with berries.

Bake for 15mins, remove fm oven, sprinkle with nuts. Bake further 25mins. Stand slice in pan 10mins bef turning onto a wire rack to cool.

Dust the slice with sifted extra icing sugar bef cutting.

I love friand in any kinda shape.. round, oval, rectangle and now in squares! so easy to prepare.. non fussy and a guaranteed winner..

So bef i go.. once again lemme gv my thanks to two dearies .. to Rosnani who is fm Montreal Canada.. ty for the macs order.. was nice to be able to sit down with u and talk talk for a good 2hrs! hope u enjoyed ur day with ur girlfriends! to Siti Aisha who bought over my layer prune cake and macs.. ty dear .. see u later ok!

Belum pernah coba bikin friand. Aku lihat resepnya nggak pake kuning telur, tapi kayaknya tetap lembut dan dense ya kak...
