Rhubarb & Rose Friands…

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is coming up in September and today I am sharing this Rhubarb & Rose Friands recipe with you.

Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 35 minutes

Serves 12

Friand tray tin (8cm each)



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Slice the rhubarb on a diagonal to 2cm pieces, sprinkle with the caster sugar. Roast for 15 minutes. For the batter first melt the butter in a small saucepan, allow to cool to use in the recipe.
  3. Grease the friand tin with a little of the melted butter.
  4. Sift the flour and icing sugar into a bowl then stir through the ground almonds. Separate the eggs and retain the egg whites into another large bowl and whisk until they are white and frothy.
  5. Gently mix the frothy egg whites into the bowl of dry ingredients. Add the melted butter, vanilla extract, and rose water, stir to combine.
  6. Fill the friand tin until each mould is ⅔ full. Then place a piece of the roasted rhubarb on top and gently press into the batter.
  7. Bake the friands in the oven for 15 -20 mins minutes, or until they are lightly golden and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  8. Let the friands cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Serve the friands warm or cold with a dusting of icing sugar.
