This post is a little late as I wanted to make something special. Not just because it’s the weekend and we all could do with a pick me up from the week we just had. No, I wanted to make something special as this is my 200th post on this blog. Now for the super hardcore bloggers out there, that won’t seem like a lot. To me, that seems like a milestone that needs celebrating.
Over the last 200 posts, I have eaten at some of the greatest restaurants, travelled the world and covered my kitchen repetitively in flour and icing sugar. I’m lucky that I get to share with everyone my adventures into the ever exciting world of food and fun. Here’s to 200 more and then some!

- 150g Ground Almonds
- 90g Plain Flour
- 240g Icing Sugar
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 280ml Free Range Egg Whites (about 8 eggs)
- 250g Unsalted Butter (melted)
- 1tbsp Honey
- 75g Icing Sugar
- 1 tsp Raspberry Extract
- Oven to 190C. Butter a 1/2 cup tin, can be a 12 hole muffin tin. In a bowl, mix the almonds, flour, icing sugar and baking powder. Add the egg whites, a little at a time until smooth. Whisk in the cooled melted butter and honey. The batter will be really thin.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared tins until full and bake until 30 mins until golden and test with a skewer until it comes out clean. Leave to cool.
- Mix the icing sugar with the raspberry extract until smooth, you might need a few drops of water to loosen the icing. Pour the icing over these little cuties and serve.
