For the drizzle

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. For the friands, place the ground almonds, butter, flour, sugar and eggs into a food processor and blend to make a thick, smooth batter.

  3. Lightly grease six wells of a muffin tin with butter and divide the batter equally among the wells.

  4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 12 minutes, or until beginning to turn golden-brown.

  5. Remove from the oven and top each muffin with a slice of apricot. Return to the oven and bake for a further five minutes, or until golden-brown and risen. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes in the tin.

  6. For the drizzle, place the orange juice and honey into a pan and heat gently, stirring, until well combined.

  7. To serve, remove the friands from the muffin tin and place onto a serving plate. Spoon over the warm honey and orange drizzle.
