Blackberry and hazelnut friands



A quick bake this morning, batch of Blackberry and hazelnut friands, adapting Nigel Slater’s recipe from Kitchen Diaries II (also here) a little. Boxed up and ready to take to the office, not that I normally take cakes to work but our office dog’s retiring, getting too old for the commute so I thought it’d be a nice treat (for the rest of us). Anyway, I used all the same ingredients but reduced sugar to 120g, used both ground and chopped hazelnuts (for a more interesting texture) and increased quantity to 120g and also used 12 large blackberries, one each per friand – this is around 100g and not 60 recommended by Slater. Really good and not too sweet. Very quick to make although I did have to rush to work so boxed them while they were still a bit warm. Good to eat in the morning too as not too sweet.
