I was pretty excited about this topping for a zucchini cake, but it gave me trouble. First, the mixture was very thin. Also I think my oven isn't suited to this type of food. It's heated by a flame broiler underneath that is very close to the food. Broiled 3 minutes at 300 degrees and the liquid part had run off the cake but nothing else had happened. Left it 7 more minutes, and it was slightly charred but still had not developed a brittle texture I was looking for. I may fiddle with the proportions and leave out the cream or just use one spoonful.
