chocolate butter glaze


from baker's dozen cookbook. i used this to glaze rich chocolate cake (under my recipe) and the glaze is unbelievably delicious with a shiny finish. easy to prepare and it's perfect for a cake that does not require refrigeration (suitable for tropical weather such as singapore). serve frosted cake at room temperature. use best quality chocolate for good results (i used valrhona). the prep time is for the microwave method for preparing the glaze only (glazing cake not included). yield is 1 1/2 cups which is perfect for a 9 inch cake.
