READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mailbelle

Drizzle this glaze over pound cake, angel food cake, or vanilla ice cream! Cook time is the time for the glaze to harden. From the "What Can I Bring? Cookbook" by Anne Byrn, author of "The Cake Mix Doctor."

I was worried as it was boiling that it wasn't going to turn out well but kept following instructions. Added a teaspoon of vanilla extract as others suggested. Turned out smooth and tastes great too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a small suacepan over low heat, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cocoa powder and milk. Cook the glaze, stirring, until it thickens and comes to a boil, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 cups of confectioners' sugar, adding more if needed to make the mixture smooth and a little thicker than pancake syrup; don't let the glaze get too thick.
  4. Ladle the warm glaze over a room temperature cake and let sit until the glaze hardens, about 30 minutes.
