Maximum effect. Minimum effort.
I love cooking. I really do. But usually I want to play with flavour combinations to gain the most delicious dish with the minimum amount of effort. Most of these recipes reflect this.
Chocolate Hazelnut Friands
6 egg whites
1 cup (125g) ground hazelnuts, toasted
150g melted butter, cooled
50g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
1½ cups (240g) icing sugar, sifted
Choc chips to taste
Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly grease 12 friand molds.
Lightly beat egg whites. Stir in ground hazelnuts and melted butter. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and icing sugar into the mixture. Stir through choc chips if using.
Divide mixture among prepared pans (approx ¼ cup mixture into each one).
Bake in preheated oven 25 minutes until cooked through (when a skewer is inserted into centre, it should come out clean).
