    Very easy to make and quite nice. Mine were undercooked a bit in the middle (I blame my oven) but I think making them as mini muffins would be even nicer, they are almost like Friands. Really lovely! (I used almond meal in place of the flour too and that might be why they were like Friands for me). Definitely keeping this recipe for a quick dessert.  -  08 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
