2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 tsp. vanilla extract


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

This is a Cake Mix Doctor recipe. For something so quick and easy, it really packs a lot of flavor. It makes enough for 1 bundt or tube cake. For a change, you can substitute 1/4 cup of brewed coffee for the cream. And it's made from ingredients you probably have on hand already. Be sure to sift the sugar to avoid lumps!
