This is the best recipe ever! I love it! more people should try it the Caramelized way! My sister and I posted this recipe. We got it from our French private teacher. She is from France, so she knows what she is doing.
Like the Bretons make! To them, this cake is known as the Kouin Amann (kween ah mahn). Loved it in Brittany--thanks for the recipe!
