Blueberry Lime Friands


1 stick butter
1/2 cup shelled, blanched whole hazelnuts
3/4  cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4  cup all purpose flour
 finely grated peel of 2 limes
1 2/3 cups SVO Blueberries
4 large egg whites
Lime Syrup:
Freshly squeezed juice of 1 small lime
3 tablespoons sugar
1 9 cup friend pan, well buttered

1. Preheat oven to 400° turn. Melt butter in a small pan and let cool slightly. Whiz the hazelnuts in a blender until finely ground. Set the confectionery sugar and flour into a large mixing bowl stir in the ground hazelnuts, lime peel, and blueberries.

2. Put the egg whites in a large bowl and whisk until they form soft peaks using a large metal spoon, fold half the egg whites into the flour mixture with half the melted butter - be as gentle as you can be. Fold in the other half of the egg whites and melt the butter.

3. Spoon the batter onto the cups of the prepared friand pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 min. 

4. To make the lime syrup, heat the lime juice and sugar together in a small pan, stirring until all sugar has dissolved. Let the baked friands cool for 5 min., then make a few holes in the top of each using the point of a small sharp knife. Drizzle a little of the lime syrup over each of the warm cakes, allowing it to seep into the holes. Leave the friands in the pan until completely cool, before running a knife around edges and turning them out.
