Blueberry Friands and my garden of the blues~

Such a quick teatime treat!!
I found the recipe in the latest Food and Home....

120g castor sugar
1/4cup cake flour
100g ground almond
pinch of salt

120g melted butter beaten
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
100g blueberries, drained
icing sugar for dusting

Mix sugar with flour, almonds and salt.
Gradually fold in butter to the mixture, alternating with the eggs until you have a smooth batter.
Preheat oven to 180deg C
Pour the batter into a 6 hole friand tin..(I used the large size muffin tin)...until it comes 3/4 up to the top.
Spoon berries into the centre and bake 'til cooked, about 15-20 min.
Cool and dust with icing whilst fresh and warm!

And here are the blues in my garden....

My little piece of my alley...

My corner for for my soul....


Have a wonderful week...
Shel xx
