Only one picture this week. That's because this fairly simple and incredibly yummy cake disappeared before I could click the camera twice! While I was making this cake (quartre-quarts means 4/4 and the cake is based on equal measurements of eggs, flour, sugar and butter), I thought it was going to be a little plain...so I was going to make a blueberry compote to go on top. But, I was making Sunday dinner and completely forgot to make the compote. Good thing, because this little baby is terrific all by itself. I did use rum instead of vanilla, as Dorie suggests. I think that made all the difference.
If you are looking to make a simple cake with ingredients you always have on hand...look no further. To see if any of my fellow Doristas modified this recipe, take a look here.
