I can’t remember the first time I had something with brown butter but I am sure that whatever it was, it was so good that it put me in a food coma, which is why I can’t remember what I had. Anyways, I love brown butter! The flavor does add a wonderful richness to just about any dessert. I have seen brown butter chocolate chip cookies and I’m dying to try them.
Pound cake is one of my favorite cakes. I love dense and moist cakes with a light glaze. Icing can be a bit too much for me at times, which is why pound cake is perfect. No wonder why this pound cake is now one of my favorite things to eat. It has all the characteristics that I love in a pound cake and the brown butter flavor. This pound cake would be perfect for brunch or dessert. It kind of makes me think it would be a perfect ending to a soul food dinner of fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, yams, and greens.
Although I would love to take full credit for this wonderful creation, I have to give props where they are due. I adapted this recipe from Sassy Radish. I hope you enjoy it!
