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.
