Makes 12

185g butter, melted

6 egg whites

225g icing sugar

75g plain flour

zest of 1 lemon

60g blueberries

You will need 12 friand moulds, which are slightly oval shaped, or just use muffin cases.

Brush each mould with a little of the melted butter. Whisk the egg whites to just soft peaks, sift the icing sugar and whisk into the egg whites. Fold in the flour, ground almonds, lemon zest and blueberries, followed by the remaining melted butter. Divide the mixture between the moulds, bake for 25-30 minutes until nicely browned, Serve warm
