Pumpkin Cake with Browned Butter Glaze
I married this guy. He’s cute and all, but he doesn’t like cake. Specifically, he doesn’t like cake because of the frosting.
Personally, I believe that cake only exists to serve a purpose for frosting, but whatever. He thinks that the frosting ruins a cake and he won’t eat it.
He even makes judge-y faces at me when I scrape his frosting off a piece of cake for him and proceed to eat the frosting with a spoon. He thinks that’s “weird.” Or “gross.” Or “a problem that needs medical help.” Doesn’t he understand that I’m only doing that to help him out?
He just doesn’t get me.
But, then! I made this cake. And I topped it with this glaze. He looked at me with his sad eyes, all “oh, you had to ruin it with the frosting, didn’t you?”
So, I did what any loving wife would do and I begged him to just try a tiny bite of the frosting. Off a spoon. The way God intended. Making him try foods that he’s already declared he hates is a hobby of mine.
This time, though, he liked it. In fact, he ate a SECOND spoonful of frosting. Then he ate a piece of cake and the heavens rejoiced.
What I’m saying is, this browned butter glaze/frosting saves marriages. We nearly had to divorce over our difference of opinion, but now I can continue having someone around to take out the trash. Thank goodness.
