TWD - Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake


I don't think it's a fluke that this is the first recipe in Dorie's new book.  Everything fabulous should start with the words "brown butter".  I love the nutty taste it imparts, I love the smell while it's browning, I love to watch all the shit that happens in the pan.  Perfection.

This isn't technically a pound cake, but it certainly acts like one.  I loved a slice of it toasted with a hint of butter, but this would be great with just about any topping that floats your boat.  Or all by itself.  


Dorie also suggests serving this with tea, coffee or her best idea....a snifter of rum.  I like the way she thinks!

We're not supposed to post the recipes, so sorry about that, but order yourself a copy!
