The night I brought the galley home, K made the Plain and Simple Almond Cake. Two days later, she made the Apple Weekend Cake. Suffice it to say, we are very much fans of the Simple Cakes chapter of Baking Chez Moi.
When the Brown Butter and Vanilla Weekend Cake was selected for Tuesday's with Dorie, I was pleased. The recipe is simple, but browning butter is something we can all use some more practice at. Unlike the last project, we stayed fairly true to the recipe, though we substituted rye for rum.
The verdict: No surprise that we liked this one. Straight out of the oven it was nice, but as promised was much better the next morning. I've been breaking off pieces for the last few days and look forward to trying it toasted, as suggested.
