I followed this recipe exactly after rereading it at least 5 times. All that butter on HIGH HEAT FOR 5 MINUTES. I couldn't believe it but did it anyway. The cake came out in perfect form,springy to the touch but tasted exactly like burned butter and smelled even worse. What a waste of ingredients!! No amount of ice cream and caramel sauce would help this.

I had to make this after reading the single review and had to wonder how this would be if the butter were BROWNED, not burned! So in the interest of fairness, I made it exactly as written. Bottom line, for not having any levening except the eggwhites, this was a nice little coffeecake. I love brown butter, and often sub it in muffins, etc. This could have used a bit less, and a little tweaking with some vanilla and some warm spice...I suspect this cake maybe a kosher adaptation, not sure, but really its not bad at all. Just don't burn the butter!!

I make it every Christmas. I watch the butter and take it off when it's at the right color, instead of timing it.
