German Chocolate Cake Icing Glaze Recipe

If you are looking for a simple cake icing recipe that is super easy to make and only takes 3 ingredients, then you found it! I like to use this recipe to glaze my bundt cakes (tube cakes).

Recipe is from: Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook

German Chocolate Cake Icing Glaze Recipe


1 (4 ounce) package German sweet chocolate, broken up into pieces
3 tablespoons butter or margarine (I use butter)
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar

In a small saucepan, melt together the chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in the powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons of hot water. Add more hot water, if needed, to make of pouring consistency. Spoon over cake. Glazes top of a 10" round tube cake (bundt cake).
