The recipe says the cake is best if it can sit after baking and be eaten the “next” day…even stretching it out over a weekend. Well, it probably helps if you don’t have a lot of people wanting a slice but I can say it was eaten promptly with no leftovers. 🙂
The general consensus from my tasters was that everyone expected it to be a more typical pound cake but it just wasn’t. It was a lot more moist and had more flavor. Two people commented it seemed like a “vanilla wafer cake”. Interesting analogy but I totally got it.
The best part about this cake, besides everyone loving it, was just how easy it was. I think the only thing that was a little daunting was getting the “browned butter” right and not ending up as Dorie states on the other side with “blackened butter” I watched it very closely and had no problem. I would totally make this again…easy and delicious!
Granola Energy Bar Update…seeing as some people got crunchy and some people got chewy granola bars, I took the advice from fellow bakers and tried these again! This time I used regular corn syrup instead of the brown rice syrup and got a much chewier bar….more of what I was expecting. I also added the mini chocolate chips after the other mixture had cooled and they stayed whole! They tasted much better…I am glad I tried these again, so thanks for the encouragement! 🙂
