This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we made Brown-Butter-and-Vanilla Weekend Cake (page 6) from Baking Chez Moi.
Brown butter is still a technique that I am learning. I usually don’t cook it long enough because I am afraid I am going to burn it but I am getting practice as Dorie has a few recipes with brown butter.
I used white rum instead of dark which seemed to have worked. It did not over power the cake as some stated who had already made it. My review, I think I would use my glass pan next time and I would bake it slightly less. I think I over did it by about 5 minutes and it was a little dry. My book club said they liked it and everyone finished their piece. They also agreed that it was a little over baked. Everyone tasted the vanilla bean.
