Place the butter in a small saucepan and melt over a low heat until it becomes a light golden colour. Set aside.

Mix the ground almonds, icing sugar, cake flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add the egg whites and mix thoroughly. Stir in the butter.

Grease a six-cup muffin tin. Divide the batter among the cups and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown but still slightly moist inside.

Prepare the icing:

Place the icing sugar in a medium-sized heatresistant bowl. Stir in the butter and granadilla pulp to form a thick paste. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing hot water and stir until the icing has a spreadable consistency – use it immediately on the cooled almond cakes.
