Ladies and gentlemen, the butter club is now officially open for applications, not to worry, there are unlimited number of seats, all you need is a brick of that churned piece of heaven and a willingness to cook it in every way possible.

Ahem…well yes. There should be something like a butter club, I actually did think of starting something online but no time for that right now – why? Because we gotta bake!

You see, now that the rainy season is in full throttle and the darkness has settled (seriously, pitch black at 4.30 pm, whaaat?) a nice warm treat is totally needed! How else are we supposed to survive?

This cake has a rich nutty flavour from brown butter and maple syrup, it also has a nice touch of tanginess from sour cream, and to close the deal it’s drizzled with thick rum caramel.

My friends, this cake will make you sing the following: MY ANACONDA WANTS NONE UNLESS YOU GOT BROWN BUTTER CAKE HUN. Get the recipe after the jump!
