Sweet and spicy cake with brown butter icing.

Top Review by kabu3741

I needed cupcakes rather than the cake so I reduced the baking time by 15 mins and turned the pans halfway through. These had a lovely mild flavour and were well liked by my family. I substituted cream cheese for the frosting as we prefer it over butter cream, so I didn't have the opportunity to try your brown butter icing. Thanks for a lovely recipe.
