Pumpkin Truffle Pound Cake with Browned Butter Icing
Ok, so I can't really say how good the finished cake is, because I made it to donate to a cake auction. However, I did lick the spoon when I was done and it was quite tasty. My one criticism is that it says 2 hour and 45 minutes for the total time. I started this cake at 4pm and went into the oven around 5:30 and came out around 7. By the time it cooled off and I made the icing and drizzled it on there it was quarter to 9. So... 2:45 my eye, it took me 4 hours and 45 minutes. They need to re-estimate their time for real people, not for baking whizzes who make cakes all the time. The recipe was so confusing with all the ingredients and steps I had to keep reading the recipe to remember what I was doing with what ingredient. I give this three spoons because the batter tasted good but it was a serious pain in the you know what and took FOREVER.
