Kouign amann AKA butter cake

This month's baking challenge didn't exactly go as planned.

The plan was for Sara to make the kouign amann dough in advance, and then to come over to my house on a Sunday to shape and bake the pastries in advance of our book club meeting. As it turned out, once Sara got started on the recipe, there was no stopping point until the pastries were in the muffin tin, shaped and ready to go.

So Sara did the legwork on this one, and I preheated and used my oven. The good news is that they were delicious -- both fresh out of the oven, and with coffee the next day. No surprises there, since the name literally means "butter cake."

And, so I got to bake, too, I made a cake.
