Quatre-quarts

Quatre-quarts
It's Friday which means it is French Friday's With Dorie.  Today, we made  a Quatre-quarts cake.  This cakes is made with four equal parts  eggs, flour, sugar, and butter.   Quatre-quarts cake is the French cousin of the American pound cake.  It is slightly drier than a pound cake, but just as delicious.  This cake  has a delicate  flavor  that goes great with just about anything.

I cut the cake in wedges and served it with fresh fruit.




This recipe can be found on pages 434-435 in "Around My French Table."
