semisweet chocolate chips
light corn syrup
Great on a chocolate zucchini cake baked in a bundt. I made the glaze in the microwave using a pyrex glass measuring cup, at 45 seconds for the chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup, stirring until smooth then adding the vanilla. Tip: spray the measuring spoon with non-stick spray before measuring the corn syrup and it will slide right out.
I am torn on reviewing this recipe. The flavor I would give 4 stars but the texture would be a 2. I am a baker and thought I would try this on my chocolate cake that I sell. I made this 4 times before rating this recipe. Satiny should not be the name of this recipe. It is grainy and hardens more than I would expect. I know that oer cooking choc will cause it to have this effect but that is not the case I would recommend doubling the corn syrup. Great flavor just does not make for a smooth "satiny" glaze.
DO NOT USE A STOVE! Microwave 45 seconds, stir, microwave 45 seconds, stir. If needed, microwave in 15 second intervals, stir. EASY, EASY, EASY. Use it while it is warm!
I didn't have corn syrup so I substituted it with honey. I also didn't have a double boiler so I used a ceramic bowl in a saucepan of boiling water instead, and it still worked great! Easy and simple for amateurs like me!
In a word, excellent. This will be in my permanent recipe file and will be used over and over.
This recipe is great! I doubled the ingredients, tossed into a 4 cup glass measuring cup, microwaved for 30 seconds and stirred. It took about three rounds in the microwave before being smooth. The glaze hardens to a nice consistency. Thanks!!!!
Excellent texture and excellent flavor. I had the impression this would be a thin glossy liquid type glaze, but its more along the lines of a frosting. BUT STILL VERY GOOD!
This is one of my favorite recipes from this site. It is super easy and so versatile - I've used it on cakes (a boxed cake mix made in a bundt pan and this make a great, pretty, quick treat), doughnuts, ice cream, brownies, eclairs, cream puffs, garnish for chocolate dipped strawberries (using white chips instead of semisweets), and even cookies. This is super!
