I drained my bank account so you don’t have to – I lived 5 minutes from Mastro’s Steakhouse so it was a little too easy to pick one of these warm butter cakes for “research”, after tax and tip, you’re looking at $25+ for 1 small cake! There’s a reason why almost everyone that visits Mastro’s orders this cake – it’s extremely delicious, the crust is slightly caramelize and chewy – the interior is tender & buttery with a salty finish, there’s a wonderful cheesecake layer on the bottom, the brûléed turbinado sugar topping creates a wonderful textural difference, especially when paired with vanilla bean ice cream. It’s very decadent and perfect for any occasion when you want to have a special dessert. This is my copycat of Mastro’s Famous Warm Butter Cake – it took me a year to perfect – I hope you enjoy being able to recreate this amazing treat at home.
