Notes

We used freeform paper cases made by pushing a 12cm square of paper (we used paper about the same thickness as printer paper) into ungreased pan holes, followed by a 12cm square of baking paper. variation peach and coconut friands Omit the glacé pineapple and replace with 150g finely chopped glacé peach.
