Brown Butter Cake with Cookie Dough Frosting
Anyways, I made this cake well not really a few days ago, a few weeks ago now. Oops, forgot to post about it. I made it for my, then pregnant Aunt, the baby is now like two weeks old or so. Oh the frosting on this cake! Truly the exact taste of cookie dough but even better because their is no fear of eating raw eggs.
I once read not to scrape the browned flecks at the bottom of the pan when you brown butter, but that is where more of the goodness falls. Always use the flecks. Always!
Hope everyone is baring through this weather and that my Aunt enjoyed the cake! So this was a cake for the pregnancy and now I am requested to make a cake or dessert for the baby. Obviously not for the baby to eat, but you know. Haven't been able to think of something that is just right... maybe something with meringue, so it looks like clouds... Suggestions?
