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.
