I didn’t want to call this a dessert burrito because that would just be corny. But since yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to do something special for my Assistant Gilberto.
Damn I love custards!! Desserts are always a must have. Even when you’ve eaten so much that you feel like you are going to puke but the waiter asks if you want dessert. You look at your dining company and you all shrug your shoulders and say “We’ll look at the menu”.
Remember last week we made the jelly roll sponge? Hopefully you tried it and perfected it this weekend. Because here is the cake I promised you. The cinnamon roll cake. Now you got something to work on this weekend.
I was trying to come up with cake recipes that were easy and throw togetherable at a moments notice. I may have mentioned in the past that I believe you should have a couple base recipes that you can build from. Recipes that are simple and easy, yet appear that you spent time on. Your friends will be dazzled and impressed by your skills when in reality, you have none. Recipes that are foundations that can always be built on. Enter the Jelly Roll Sponge.
I love Butternut Squash strictly because I enjoy saying “Butternut”. I want to put this recipe on the menu at work and call it “Butter my Nuts Squash Flan”. They won’t let me. They don’t take me seriously at work. I don’t know why?
Another recipe made from the brown butter recipe last week. Are you hooked yet? Hopefully this recipe will seal the deal and if not, check to see if you have a pulse.
This is one of my all time favorite brown butter recipes and scone recipes for that matter. Here is how this recipe came about.
