Unsalted butter

{nutty, rich, mouth-filling and delicious}
With its unmistakeable flavor, sweet butter bakes like a dream. No other fat can beat it when it comes to enriching cakes, pastries, cookies, or what have you. But before using it, if you brown it merely by heating it slowly in a heavy saucepan until all of its milk solids caramelize, it becomes something more. Nutty, rich and deep flavored, when used in a pound cake, it’s a game changer. European-style unsalted butter such as Plugra brand works well here. Its slightly lower water content and higher percentage of fat (82%) yield a fluffy cake with hauntingly memorable dairy notes.
