Chocolate Ganache

What is the difference between a ganache verses a glaze? Ganache is a thinner drip glaze for soaking cake or and drizzling a thin layer. A Glaze for topping donuts is thicker resulting in a heavier coating.

Chocolate Ganache

  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped fine 
  • 8 oz (1 cup) heavy cream 


  1. Place chopped chocolate into a medium bowl
  2. Heat the cream in a quart sized pan until it just begins to simmer; but watch that the cream doesn't boil.
  3. Pour hot cream over the chocolate and let sit for two minutes.
  4. Whisk together the cream into the chocolate.
  5. Use as is for glazing by drizzling over cake. 

Need a thicker coating? Give it a few seconds in the microwave enough to melt the more chocolate. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate and stir until smooth. This will thicken as it cools to glaze donuts. Enjoy!
