Ever tried browned butter cake before? Someone asked me, where to buy brown butter? Another said brown sugar added to butter?
Actually browned butter means cooking the butter in a pan until it turned browned. The browning of butter gave out a hint of fruity smell.
Recipe for Browned Butter Cake
Makes a 5" round and two mini loaves (or a 8" round pan)
250g Browned LIV salted butter
250g Plain flour
1 tsp Baking powder
180g Caster sugar (found it too sweet. can reduce to 160g)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
95g Whole milk
- To brown butter: Cook LIV salted butter over low heat in a pan, stirring occasionally until brown bits are formed. Let it cool before adding to the recipe. (Don't need to cool completely. Use it warm.)
- Add flour, baking powder, sugar, browned butter, vanilla, milk and eggs to a mixer and beat on low speed for one minute. Then continue beating at medium speed for another two minutes.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake them in the preheated oven of 180C for 35-40mins. (If using a 8" cake pan, bake for approximately 60 mins, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.)
- Let it cool in the pan for about 10mins before removing it and cool completely on a wire rack.
