Brown Butter Layer Cake w/ Bourbon Buttercream

Today, I wanted to bake a cake. And not just any cake, this beautiful, delicious cake, I saw on “Butter Me Up, Brooklyn’s” site. It’s a blog I have fallen in absolute love with. All of her recipes sound outstanding. However, this one in particular caught my eye. My husband has had this recent obsession with bourbon and this cake has bourbon perfectly infused in the frosting. Everything in the cake making process was relatively easy. And everything, smelled delightful along the way. If you have a free day, take the time to whip this up. I doubt you’ll regret it. Plus, you will make your husband, or boyfriend, or some random stranger, swoon.

    1. Thanks! I’m still learning about the in’s and out’s of icing. The cake is *so* gooooood, the bourbon takes some of the edge off the sweetness and the vanilla really stands out. I think any bourbon lover would enjoy it.
