Brown butter gives this classic pound cake the best flavor for the perfect anytime dessert.
Browned butter is so addicting. The smell is totally intoxicating and the nutty flavor that it brings to a dish is out of this world. If you haven’t tried it yet, this is your chance.
This recipe came from the pages of Southern Living magazine and I’ve made it many times. It is actually called 2 step pound cake which is simplified from the usual process of adding the eggs one at a time and alternating the liquid and dry ingredients. You really need a heavy-duty stand mixer to add all of the ingredients at once.
I decided to change it up a bit with browning half of the butter and the results were fantastic. This would be an ideal cake for your Easter dinner or any occasion for that matter. You could add fresh berries and whipped cream for an over the top dessert or it is superb served as it is.
My kids were smarting off that they didn’t think that pound cake really weighed a pound until I listed off the ingredients and then they decided it must be a three or four pound cake. I’m pretty sure I may have gained three or four pounds eating this cake! It was hard to resist. It is so perfect to just grab a little slice for breakfast and an afternoon snack, and well you get the picture.
This week is spring break for my boys and we are pretty happy to have them home. Our school doesn’t usually get a spring break, instead we usually get several Fridays off instead. I’m not sure how they did it this year but it couldn’t have come at a better time on the ranch. We are having an early spring and we are getting the meadows ready to irrigate. (You should insert they for we when I speak of irrigating.)
I’m planning to get started on my garden earlier this year as well. I bought some seeds the other day and hopefully I will find where I hid them from myself . Does that ever happen to you? No? It’s just me, well okay. How about a slice of Browned Butter Pound Cake….
