This is very quick to prepare and can be used immediately after making as a glaze to drizzle on your cake or dessert. You can let it sit a few minutes and it will thicken up into a delicious and creamy frosting. Or add a little more powdered sugar to thicken it even more. I have no idea of the number of servings because it would depend on what you were using it for. So I just stuck a number in because I had to put something there. But I would probably double it for a two layer cake. But for a glaze over a cake or dessert this would probably be plenty.
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons warm water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- Melt your butter.
- Add all other ingredients.
- Stir until well mixed and smooth.
- Add more water if you want it thinner at this point.
- If using as icing and you think it's too thick just let it sit for a few minutes.
Excellent! As with any glaze, you may need to play around with the ingredients to get the correct consistency you desire. I combined all of the liquid ingredients and then started the confectioners sugar at 1/2 cup. I added about a tablespoon more of the confectioners sugar until I got the desired consistency for my mini bundt cakes. The glaze had a really great chocolate flavor. It tasted like I had used chocolate chips or a gourmet chocolate rather than cocoa.
The results if you follow the recipe come out way too thin. I suggest adding the water one tablespoon at a time.
It's a lazy Monday and I have a craving for yellow cake with chocolate icing. I don't want to run to the store so I made a cake from scratch. I found this perfect recipe for chocolate frosting. It is absolutely delicious.
