i am delighted with my youtube student, Craig. he made this ALL ON HIS OWN. this is ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Gateau Breton (page 69) baked on a 9-inch pan. it is exceptionally tender and utterly delicious.
every ingredient came from a regular every day grocery store. gateau breton is truly delicious no matter what you put in there! i really love the texture of the first day, crisp crumbly on the outside with a moist chewy interior. really, this is the cake to bring to a dinner party when all foods are exceptional or when there is a dessert competition. simple is simply the best!
the cake is baked with the optional 9 x 2-inch round cake pan. in the oven, the cake rises near the top. during cooling, the cake sets and forms a rustic concave shape. cake doesn’t get more artisanal than this! shape of delicious nature.
