Gluten-free apple, cinnamon + brown butter friands


Just another quick one today guys, but hey... three blog posts in just over a week?! It's been a long time since that happened around here 🙂
This is another recipe I wrote for Taste Magazine, you can grab the recipe here. I give the apple slices a little loving in the pan with a dab of butter to soften them first, which results in a beautiful tender cake through and through. The cinnamon brings warmth and natural sweetness to the friand batter, while brown butter adds nuttiness that will have you wondering if hazelnuts are hiding within. Enjoy x

    These are just so cute! I can see them going as a perfect bite on a fall day. Just gotta hold off to September, when all those fresh apples are rolling in 🙂

    This looks gorgeous, I love it. I am thinking can I bake this in muffin tin. I am also thinking to cut the apple into small cubes and remove the skin. 🙂

    Now that it is getting colder, baking cakes sounds very heart warming. Your gluten-free apple, cinnamon and brown butter friands looks rustic and aromatic in the pictures, and I am sure it tastes good too. Being single and working for an events promotion company in London, where we have lots of food related events, I end up eating out a lot. But tonight, it is baking time! Cannot wait to get fingers into my apple cinnamon and brown butter friands!
