PE's Favorite Dessert

Last month we went over to Cooking W.'s house for a family dinner to sort of celebrate all the birthdays from over the summer (there were five). Cooking W. had already planned what she was making and asked if I would bring PE's favorite dessert (Scotch-a-Roos). In addition to the Scotch-a-Roos I made the Bananas and Cream Bundt Cake with Brown Butter Glaze. One of the reasons I don't make this cake very often is because it is SO delicious. The Brown Butter Glaze is just so fabulous. Really, I could eat it plain. In this instance it was not my day and it took me three tries to get it right. The first batch I had more of a dark brown (versus the desired golden brown) butter glaze that just was NOT good. Then on my second attempt I removed it from the burner then sat it aside with a rubber spatula in it. The rubber spatula melted in my golden brown butter. Lesson learned? The $0.59 IKEA rubber spatulas are $0.59 for a reason. That reason? They melt in hot butter. I think I will just stick to silicone spatulas so I don't need to worry which spatula I should be using.
