Pour over any cake or cheesecake for a smooth, rich and creamy chocolate coating. Recipe has both regular and dairy-free versions.
Ingredients
Version 1:
  • 6 oz GF semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream (or buttermilk*)
  • 1 tsp vanilla, instant coffee granules, or instant espresso powder
Version 2 (Dairy-Free):
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (dairy & gluten free)
  • 4 Tbsp margarine (dairy free)
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla, instant coffee granules, or instant espresso powder
Instructions
  1. For Version 1: In a saucepan, heat cream and flavoring as hot as you can, but remove before it begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour into a mixing bowl filled with the chocolate. Cover and let stand 10 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Let stand until slightly thickened, then pour over cake/cheesecake. Refrigerate until glaze sets.
  2. For Version 2: Cook all ingredients over low heat (or microwave) until smooth. Remove from heat and cool until slightly, then pour over cake/cheesecake. Refrigerate until glaze sets.
Notes
*For a less sweet ganache, using buttermilk in place of the cream. Its tanginess will tone down the overall sweetness.

    Will try making it without the corn syrup. Must be something healthier to take its place.

    Thank you for the work that is put into making recipes. I love to cook but really don't have the time to work on making new recipes. So I really appreciate everyone else putting in their time. Lois

    Thank you for all the delicious recipe. I try many of them & love them. My two daughters & myself are gluten free so my whole family eats that way so the recipes really help. Thanks!!!!
