Unpack your kitchen quickly Tim. Your biggest fan in Sacramento has missed you terribly.
Oh, and I made a beautiful chocolate/cinnamon bundt cake this week. I know you aren’t
a chocolate fan but it was divine. Was in the Sept Bon Appetit. :-)
Hi Tim! Sure missed your posts…I can only imagine how busy you’ve been. I love shortbread & poundcake, so I’m sure this is going to be a winner. It will be the perfect comfort food for me on Sunday….the day after my sister’s surprise 50th B’day party. I’m doing all the catering for the party on Sat. so it will have to wait until after. I will relax with a piece of that cake & a nice spot of tea. Good luck with your move.
Beautiful texture on this cake. I’ve never had Gateau Breton, but will have to give it a try now that I’ve seen your photos! Welcome back, and good luck with the move. You’ll be settled into your new kitchen in no time. :)
Made it without the rum – fantastic! So easy. Like a giant butter cookie, only it’s a cake. Whole Foods does indeed sell the Lurpak semi-salted butter. They sell just UNDER the amount required by this recipe. I added a few pats of my fridge butter to the mix and all turned out just fine. A wonderful new dessert!
I am so excited about this recipe! I had much Gateau Breton in France, and I have not been successful with the few recipes I have been able to find. Why didn’t I think of Clotilde?!? I can’t wait to make this!
Nigella Lawson also has a great gateau breton recipe in her book How to be a Domestic Goddess. I’ll have to compare it to this one!
Love your site. I’ve already printed off several recipes and plan to have some baked oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow.
