Canola Oil Pound Cake with Browned Butter Glaze Monday, January 2, 2012

Ingredients

6 TBSP canola oil
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup nonfat buttermilk
Cooking spray with flour
Glaze:
1 TBSP unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBSP 1 or 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 deg. To prepare cake, combine oil and vanilla bean in a small skillet over medium-high heat, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat. Let stand 10 minutes or until mixture cools to room temperature. Scrape seeds from bean, and stir into oil; discard bean. Combine the oil mixture, 1 3/4 cups sugar, and 1/2 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Add the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon batter into a 10-inch tube pan coated with cooking spray, and spread evenly. Bake at 350 deg for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack, and remove from pan.
To prepare glaze, melt 1 TBSP butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze over warm cake.
