Browned Butter Weekend Cake

For Christmas I received a copy of Baking Chez Moi by Doris Greenspan. The recipes are a result of the many years she has lived in Paris.

A group of bakers are baking on Tuesdays and posting on their blogs. It's fun for me to experience the differencs between European baking and American. This week we baked Browned Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake.

This cake is moist and tender and similar to a pound cake. When browning butter use low heat and pour out the butter into a bowl when you remove it from the heat.

Holiday Winner

This is the Orange Bundt Cake that won the Blue Ribbon at the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. Easy to make it is perfect to have on for unexpected guests.

This is the first time I've made it with just-picked oranges from my son's back yard. We're celebrating the holidays with sunshine not snow this year!

Palets des Dames

These cookies are easy and keep well. It's the first recipe I've tried from Baking Chez Moi by Doris Greenspan.
