Chocolate Glaze for Bundt Cakes

Susan Feliciano


This glaze sets up nicely to drizzle over a bundt cake, and is very easy to put together. I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry. Real brandy or rum can be used in place of the flavoring if you like. Also, Espresso powder can be used for flavoring.

How to Make Chocolate Glaze for Bundt Cakes


  • 1Melt the butter. Add all other ingredients. Stir until well mixed, shiny, and smooth. Add more water if you want it thinner at this point.
  • 2This thickens a bit upon standing. Drizzle over the bundt cake when it's slightly thicker so it can slowly run down the sides of the cake.
