Cherry Friands

I can’t re-blog any more in WordPress…What gives?

But glad to see cherries back in the groceries!

This is a re-post from September 2016.

Looking forward to making this again!

Cherry Friands

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!

  1. What a lovely remake on this recipe. As you I will have to save it immediately.
    I am now, without further ado following your blog and would like to know if you may be interested to be a Guest poster with us, and share some of your awesome recipes on our blog?

  2. Oh gosh I had a heart attack when I saw the pingback. I was so scared when I realised that someone had tried a recipe that I posted–would it turn out alright? I’m so very glad that they look delicious! I love the idea of the changes you made–the maple syrup sounds delicious with the cherries and ah, I do love my butter… perhaps to excess 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how even less butter turns out!
    Hehe, anyways, I’m just so excited you gave the friands a try. They are so quick aren’t they? 🙂 Happy baking!
