Thus for this chocolate layer cake from yesterday I made glaze instead of frosting. Chocolate Sour Cream Glaze to be exact.
I like the chocolate sour cream glaze on cake. Mr. J decided it was best on apples, pretzels or pretty much anything else he could scoop it on. You decide what you prefer. No matter what though it is a good thing to keep on hand.
Chocolate Sour Cream Glaze
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients (1 cake recipe)
- 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup brewed coffee, cooled
Chop the chocolate into small pieces, put them in a heatproof bowl (or a double boiler) with the butter, and set the bowl over a pot of barely simmering water. Be sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the boiling water. Whisk the melted butter into the melted chocolate until thoroughly incorporated. Remove the bowl from the heat when all of the chocolate bits have melted.
Set aside to cool for about 15 minutes. It will still be warm but not super hot.
Add the sour cream and whisk to combine. Lastly, add the coffee and whisk to create a glossy glaze.
