but after the excesses of christmas and new year,
i was definitely suffering from a bout of baked-good-overload.
those of you who know me (or have been following this blog)
will know that this is completely out of character.
i am always the first to suggest a slice of something sweet
and feel that most ailments can be fixed by a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
however i was feeling a bit weary –
and for once more cake didn’t seem to be the answer…
until that was, i stumbled upon a recipe for lemon friands.
yes, my baking sabbatical lasted all of 9 days
until i was enticed back by these lemony little lovelies!
i studded the tops with beautiful fresh strawberries
and the result was both sunny and delicious.
i think the strawberry friand and i are definitely going to be bff’s.
yep, it’s true love.
