When I saw these, Cherry Friands, I knew I desperately wanted to try them. I saved the recipe. I even saved my last batch of fresh cherries in the freezer just for this recipe!
I created a lighter version with less butter and maple syrup. Here’s how I made mine.
45 grams flour
3/4 stick butter (will use only 1/2 next time)
80 grams almond meal
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 egg whites
a pinch of salt
6 pitted cherries
Prepare a 6 muffin tin. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk together: melted butter and egg whites. Add in flour, almond meal, pinch of salt and maple syrup. Add 1-2 tbsp of batter into muffin tins. Top with a pitted cherry.
Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked and toothpick test passes.
Enjoy with a nice cuppa tea!
