Brown Eggs and Jam Jars (and a recipe for Maple Walnut Granola)

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is all about simplicity.  This Brown Butter and Vanilla Bean Weekend Cake (p6)  is a great advertisement for simple ingredients shining. Butter, flour, vanilla bean, heavy cream, eggs and sugar. You pretty much can’t go wrong, can you? The smell of this cake was enough to permeate my what-seem-to-be […]
