Make friends with friands! Sweet and petite, French friands are the ultimate bite-size treat. I love the light, squidgy texture of these miniature almond sponge cakes, and their delicate rosewater flavour feels like you’re literally devouring summertime.
Strawberry season might be over in the United Kingdom, but you can still pick up a punnet in most grocery stores. They may not be the best quality for fresh snacking, but baking them will bring a little sweet summer sunshine on a rainy autumn day.
Plus these bake in a jiffy – so ideal if you’re in need of a quick sweet treat with a cup of tea!
