You had us at "butter." This recipe from our friends at Around the World in 80 Plates has our mouths watering!
Prolific traveler, food lover, and Soirée Advisory Board member Angela Ballard shares with us what she calls "a Southern skillet cake with a decadent French past." There's not one word in that description we don't love!
Inspired, in part, by delectable desserts on a road trip through France some years ago with hubby and Advisory Board member, Mike, this recipe combines a buttery French cake with the cooking techniques of Angela's southern roots.
The Ballards are kindred spirits: they've traveled to more than 100 countries (to include a recent circumnavigation of the globe) and both write for Lonely Planet.
