Brown Butter Cake with Kahlua Glaze

I love to bake.  I have an addiction.  I saw this recipe on a blog.  I made it right then.  It was worth it. Try it!
I can't get the photo to up load.  I will continue to try!! Sorry!!


1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Kahlua
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
Kahlua Glaze
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp Kahlua
1-2 Tbsp water
Cook butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it foams, turns clear, and then turns a deep brown, about 6 minutes.* I do not like the smell of this...having second thoughts about this but I keep cooking* Pour browned butter into a glass measuring cup and chill in the freezer until solid, about 35 minutes. Remove from freezer.
Preheat oven to 350°F and coat a bundt pan with nonstick spray. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Beat cold brown butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until well blended, beat in Kahlua and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beat well after each. Combine buttermilk and yogurt in a small bowl. Reduce speed to low and add half of flour mixture to sugar mixture, beat just until combined. Add buttermilk mixture, then finish with flour mixture.
Pour batter in prepared pan and smooth top. Bake 33 to 35 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes then take it out of the pan and cool on the rack.
To make glaze, sift*whisk* powdered sugar into a small bowl. Whisk in Kahlua and water (1-2 tablespoons, depending on preferred consistency) until smooth. Glaze to your liking! YUM!!
