The browned butter adds a toasty nutty rich flavor to this Browned Butter Banana Cake. Eat it plain or add a brown sugar frosting.
I set out to make blondies with some ripe bananas that needed to be used to bring to a family reunion. Instead, this moist and tasty browned butter banana cake happened, and since I was a week off on my calendar (#oldpeopleproblem) these went to my co-workers!
Sorry familia to tease you, but I’ll be making something equally as delicious, assuming I get my event dates straight!
If you haven’t ever added browned butter to a recipe, you will be changed forever when you give it a try. You basically cook the butter, toasting it until it turns a light amber color which gives you a nutty decadent burst of flavor.
Your kitchen smell fantastic too! So why stop at cake?! For the frosting I used the same technique; browning the butter before adding the sugar. Doubly browned butter delicious!
This cake is a great one to take to your potlucks or picnics this summer. Cut them in small taster sizes or serve a big piece with some vanilla ice cream!
