Blueberry and Pistachio Friands

These mini cakes are the perfect addition to any brunch menu, afternoon tea, light snack, or a fun dessert platter. They’re full of flavour, the perfect texture, simple to make, and fun to eat.

I have been told by family and friends that these are the best friands they have ever tried and now it's your turn to enjoy them too!

Helpful Tips


  • Self-Raising Flour: as I am using gluten-free flour, I highly recommend using gluten-free self-raising flour. This is because it gives the friands a more fluffy texture. In saying this, if you choose to swap this for traditional flour, you can use plain flour instead.

  • Egg Whites: egg whites are used in this recipe as the rising agent. They need to be white and frothy before adding to the remaining ingredients and this can be achieved with a simple fork, however, if you prefer, you can use a whisk or an electric handheld whisk.
