The last January recipe from Baking Chez Moi is the Brown Butter and Vanilla
Bean Weekend Cake and it is a winner! And if you happened to be snowed in right now and have an itch to bake something delicious that would last for several days (or at least until you eat it all), well, this is a great choice!
This cake came together very quickly. So quickly in fact that I forgot to take pictures before putting it into the oven. Pretend that there is a photo here that magically includes the scent of the butter boiling on the stove. That was an amazing smell. The only choices that I made with this recipe were to use the vanilla extract since I didn’t have any vanilla beans on hand & amaretto instead of the dark rum (because I just love amaretto).
I decided to make this cake using my mini loaf pans for the first time so that I could share them with a friend. They took about 30 minutes to bake and came out beautifully.
I will absolutely make this recipe again. Perfect cake for visiting, gifts or because you just need delicious cake to enjoy with your tea & coffee. Check out the rest of our cakes here and bake along with us in February!
