“Best Cake In The World” Comes From An Old French Recipe

May 25, 2012: 08:56 PM EST
Australian food writer Ed Halmagyi provides a recipe for a “mesmerizing” cake praised by American writer David Lebovitz as “the world’s best cake.” Koign Amann (i.e., “butter cake” from northern France) is actually a caramelized, buttery, layered pastry baked in a tin. The recipe calls for high quality butter, sugar, yeast, salt and fresh-milled flour. Halmagyi says the dough, which is reminiscent of puff pastry or croissant dough, results in “a mesmerizing blend of sweet and caramel, crisp and feather-soft.”
