187 grams cake flour-sifted (it’s about 1 1/2 cups plus 3 tbsp cake flour before sifting but you better measure it on kitchen scale because the cake could be dense or dry if you overdo it with the flour)

1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp browned butter
56 grams (1/4 cup) unsalted butter-softened
112 grams (4 ounces) cream cheese-softened
