Gaby's Bakery - Blueberry Frangipane

One of the first things I ever baked is still one of my most requested. And these bite sized Frangipane tarts are simple to make and mouth meltingly soft, crumbly and sweet. Delicious…

Blueberry Frangipane

I don’t make the traditional frangipane in a tart case, I use silicone moulds and just the wet ingredients.

Ingredients:
100gms unsalted butter
100gms caster sugar
100gms ground almonds
2 eggs
Blueberries
Flaked almonds
Icing sugar to dust on top to decorate

Method:
Preheat oven to 170⁰C

Choose some moulds you want to use and grease them. Beat the butter and sugar until light & fluffy, then add the eggs one at a time, beating each time. Add the ground almonds and fold in. Pour into the prepared moulds up to ¾ full. Drop a few blueberries on to each cake, quantity will vary depending on individual cake size.

Sprinkle over the flaked almonds and bake for appx 20-25 mins.

They are ready once browned on top and firm to the touch. Leave to cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar to serve.

Enjoy

And growing out tint isn't always successful, most people return to having colour, but Julie's was a rare case where the...

Where were you standing when you decided to adjust your hair colour? Do you stand there often?

At the first salon I worked as a junior, back in the last century, the colourists at the salon had an interesting technique for showing clients their finished results; escorting them to the ladies toilet where a single electric wall light seemed to cast a favourable glow.
