Let the baked friands  cool for 5 min., then make a few holes in the top of each using the point of a small sharp knife. Drizzle a little of the lime syrup over each of the warm cakes, allowing it to seep into the holes. Leave the
friands in the pan until completely cool, before running a knife around edges and turning them out.
