    wicked cook 46's Note:

    Posting for the ZWT Australia/ New Zealand Found on the web at "The "Friand" is a small, moist cake made with almond meal and flour. It is of French origin and may be related to the Parisian "financier" cake. Through the years the Friand has become a popular treat in the Australian cafe scene. While delicate and delicious on its own, the Friand can also be flavored with fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, lemon or orange. This particular recipe gives the Friand a tropical touch with fresh mango and desiccated coconut." I think a cheek of mano is probably half a mango LOL and you need a 6 mini loaf tins to hold 1/2 cup of liquid

      These are fantastic! So easy to make, yet full of flavor...and they look great to boot. Made with Gluten-Free Flour Mixture (Number One) to make them gluten free. Thanks for sharing. Made for Aussie Swap June 2009.
