This is one of my family's favorite desserts. The browned butter adds such depth of flavor. It is the perfect dessert for autumn.

This cake is SO wonderful. My husband can't get enough of it and I confess neither can I! I made it first off the LOL carton and I was sure it called for the butter for the cake to also be browned, but have misplaced that recipe. The tiny pieces of browned butter resemble vanilla seeds.
