It starts with 8 simple ingredients...
1 package Chocolate CANDIQUIK (16oz)
1 cup plus 3 Tbsp butter
1/2 C sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp (gluten-free) vanilla extract
Directions (chocolate cake):
Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
Spray a 9-inch (or 12″) spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray, then line the bottom with a circle of parchment paper.
Spray the paper with cooking spray too, then set the pan to the side –
Place 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter (cut into chunks) and 8 oz (half of the 16oz package) CANDIQUIK in the heat and serve microwaveable tray (put remaining CQ in separate container/bag).
Microwave on high for 45 sec- 1 minute, stirring often, continue in 15 sec increments- if necessary, until melted and completely blended
Now pour the CANDIQUIK and butter mixture into a large bowl. Add sugar and mix well
Add the six eggs, one at a time, whisking after each one.
Sift the cocoa into the bowl. See Photo
Stir until blended.
Pour into springform pan and bake 30-40 min or until cake has risen and formed a thin crust
Directions for the Chocolate Glaze:
Break apart two squares from the unused CANDIQUIK (you will have 2 squares left-over after you use these) and 3 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan over medium low heat - stir until smooth.
Remove the glaze from the heat, then stir in vanilla, honey, and milk. Set aside to slightly cool off.
When the cake has cooled, pour the glaze onto the center and use a spatula or the backside of a spoon to smooth the glaze along the top and sides of the cake.
Chill the cake in the refrigerator, uncovered, for 30-60 minutes before serving to allow the glaze to set and it will also make the cake much easier to slice
