Gluten Free Lemon and Raspberry Friands

Gluten free friands are a simple to make french cake that are really popular in Australia. They’re generally oval in shape and you can find these moulds in any good kitchenware store. This recipe uses lemons and raspberries – if you can source the raspberries fresh then do it, you won’t regret it. If not, the next best option is frozen raspberries from the supermarket.
