Almond and Blueberry (Raspberry) Friands (Gluten Free)!!!

I am a big lover of Friands!!!

And to my absolute delight when I received the latest issue of Donna Hay and saw the recipe it didn't take me long at all to get stuck into it!!!

Setting the cases up...

Even though the recipe stated Raspberries I substituted Blueberries!!!
I also substituted gluten free flour for the plain flour...and it worked really well!!!

And I couldn't stop taking pics of them!!!

Absolutely delicious!!!
