Blueberry and lime friands
I am a fan of anything with citrus in it - sweet or savoury, it doesn't matter. There's nothing like the mouth-puckering tang that a little citrus zest gives to a dish.
When I was looking for a simple baking recipe to keep my colleagues happy, but which didn't require a trip to the shops, I came across a gem of a recipe for lime and blueberry friands from The Australian Womens Weekly Sweet book. Not only were these easy for a weary traveller like me to make late at night, but they contained a citrus burst in the form of lime zest - perfect. They are baked in mini muffin tins, so you get a bite-sized morsel only.
Handily for all of us, the recipe for these friands is posted here, so that you too can enjoy them at home.
These friands are perfect with a sprinkling of icing sugar on top for fancy presentation.
