8. Berry Butter Cake
Cake is never a bad idea, and it’s no secret that really good cake involves a little (fine, a lot of) butter. This recipe is called butter cake for a reason—it uses both regular butter for the batter as well as browned butter, to add a nutty flavor to the mix. That sweet, buttery base combined with berry jam makes the perfect dessert that anyone would love.
