This is posted for Sly Girl. It's a Cake Mix Doctor recipe. Very chocolatey, but so fast and easy. It makes enough for 1 bundt or tube cake. For a change, you can substitute 1/4 cup of brewed coffee for the cream.


  1. Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat.
  2. Add cocoa and cream, stir until it thickens, about 2 minutes.
  3. Do not boil.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  5. Spoon over your cooled cake.
  6. If you'd like to add nuts on the glaze, sprinkle them over when the glaze is still warm.

This is good, I used the 1/4 c. coffe instead of cream b/c i made my mom a dark chocolate cake w/a marscapone coffee filling w/this glaze on top, for her b-day, it was to-die-for!!

It looks like I have failed to review this glaze. I've used it several times and it is delicious - and quick and easy to make. If you have a good chocolate cake and want to put that special final touch on it, give this glaze a try. UPDATE: OH MY -- I just noticed -- apparently when I did this reviewe earlier this year, I neglected to select any stars!!! NO, no, no!!! It needs to have the 5 stars it deserves. Thanks, ciao!
