200 g icing sugar
60 g cake flour
120 g ground almonds
5 large egg whites, whisked
2 tsp (10 ml) lemon zest
Seeds from 1 vanilla pod
180 g unsalted butter, melted
1 C (250 ml) fresh mixed berries (raspberries, strawberries or blueberries)
3 Tbsp (45ml) flaked almonds
Extra icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Lightly grease 8 small (80 ml) oval moulds.

Mix the icing sugar, flour and ground almonds together. Stir in the whisked egg whites, lemon zest, vanilla seeds and melted butter.

Pour the batter into the moulds until two-thirds full. Divide the berries between the moulds and lightly press them into the batter. Scatter the flaked almonds on top.
