Hard to find something the patient can eat on chemo day.
But this did the trick.
"It's pound cake," he said.
Dorie explains that they call it a weekend cake in France, because it's something you can take on a picnic or nibble on all weekend. I doubt if this one will make it to the weekend at the rate we're consuming it.
This nice little cake is enhanced with the flavors of:
- browned butter (WHY haven't I ever browned butter before?)
- lots of vanilla (my bean was more crisp than sticky, so I used extract)
- and rum ("spiced rum" because it's what we had)
And it was easy. Oh how I love that the recipes in Baking Chez Moi are easy! Thank you Dorie.

And for your entertainment, a shoe. This picture was taken in the side mirror of my car. C'mon, you know that's a skill!
