I have recently discovered the exotic beauty & taste of browned butter! I could go on & on about how I am gonna be browning butter to extract all those nutty aromatic flavor for all of my cooking, not just limited to baking.

Browned Butter Coffee Cake

  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of pecans
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of  vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups of yogurt
  • Browned Butter Icing
  • Directions:

    • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat until it is brown & fragrant. Cool
    • Reserve 2 tablespoons of the butter in a small bowl and set aside.
    • In another small bowl add pecans, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of the browned butter. Mix together until crumbly; set aside
    • Comine the dry ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl. Set aside
    • In a large bowl mix together the remaining butter and brown sugar until fluffy; adding eggs one @ a time.
    • Stir in vanillla. Alternately add flour mixture and yogurt to butter mixture.
    • Pour half of the batter in a greased tube pan, sprinkle filling and then pour the reamining batter on top.
    • Bake in a preheated oven @ 350 degrees for an hour or until done.


    Browned Butter Icing:

    Mix the 2 tablespoons of reserved browned butter, 1 cup of powdered sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cooled coffee in a small bowl and stir until smooth enough to drizzle.

    It’s delicious served warm.  I know your family & friends will love it as much as mine did! 😀 Enjoy
