Brown Butter Zucchini Coffee Cake
My daughter Courtney loves zucchini bread and coffee cake so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try for her. We took it over to her last night and dug right in and I have to say that it was the perfect match of zucchini bread and coffee cake, smelled and tasted just as I had hoped it would, delicious!
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, cut into pieces
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup sour cream or yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups shredded or ground zucchini
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 – 2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom of 9 x 13″ pan.
2 For the cake, melt butter over medium low heat then continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until butter turns golden brown and has a nutty aroma. Pour into small bowl and let cool.
3 Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
