Viv's Amazing Almond Butter Cake

Here's a butter cake made with one of the finest butters in the world

Presenting . . .

Isigny Sainte Mère

beurre d'Isigny = butter from Isigny

We cream this A.O.P. French butter for at least eight minutes. That means you get a lighter, more luxurious bite and an oh-so-fine crumb.

In fact, we obsess about lightness so much, we go the extra mile:

#1. We've snuck some sour cream into our cake

#2. We separate our eggs, so that we heighten the lightness with the lightness of a meringue


Let's talk about A.O.P.

Appellation d'Origine Protégée

The term, protected designation of origin, is conferred by the French government for traditional food products that have been protected and recognized for their heritage and quality. Isigny, in the Normandy region of Northwest France, is renowned for its terroir and its centuries-old knowledge of butter-making.

We not only have a secret ingredient, we've worked in a little technique and a little extra care —

#1. We toast our superfine-ground almond for that deep, mysterious note of nuts

#2. We hand-fold our dry ingredients into the wet

gently, gently, always gently

Finally, for that perfect roundness of flavor, we use:

the extract of Madagascan vanilla bean and the natural oil of bitter almond

butter cakes taste better the day after it's baked, and most delicious two days after — the butter, the sugar, the flour, the eggs, they all ripen in concert for a lovely flavor crescendo the day (and days) after
