Browned Butter Cake

Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001
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
3 Eggs


  1. 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.)

  3. 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.
  4. 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.)
  5. Let it cool in the pan for about 10mins before removing it and cool completely on a wire rack.

This cake looks light and fluffy. I think I am going to give it a try.
Oh, is this brand of butter just as good?

Hi Catherine,
Yes, Liv is a nice creamy Australian butter. It bakes really well in butter cakes and other creaming methods.
