I just got back from a vacation in France and fell absolutely in love with a Breton buttercake called Kuign Amann (or Aman) :roll:. In fact, I think I'll forever associate the smell of warm butter (lots and lots of butter ) and sugar with Brittany. The second night we were there our B & B owner ended dinner with his grandmother's recipe. I begged him for a copy--after rhapsodizing over the taste, the smell, the entire experience of this incredible dessert :smiles: ) but he just said it was simple: butter, sugar and a little flour. However, the recipes I've found through Googling are a little more complicated than that. Here's a link to the one I intend to try: Kuign Amann . Have any of you ever made this cake before? Any comments on this recipe? Got a better one? The reason I haven't made it yet is because we need to arrange a small gathering of people to try it. Otherwise David and I are in real danger of eating the whole thing ourselves . And we're already trying to lose the weight we gained on the trip.
