Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

This cake is light and airy, and easy to make. The cake is dairy-free, but not the glaze (which can easily be skipped if you have friends or family members who are lactose intolerant.) The cake has cocoa and orange juice, and the glaze has chocolate, butter and sugar…it’s a recipe for success!

Easy Chocolate Cake with Yummy Chocolate Glaze

Serves 12

1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup boiling water

Chocolate Glaze

2 tablespoons butter
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 tablespoons boiling water 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line or grease an 11.5 x 7.5 x 2-inch baking pan.  

In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine well.

In another bowl, whisk together the orange juice, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Stir wet mixture into the flour mixture until lightly combined, then add boiling water, and stir until all is combined.

Spoon into the prepared pan and bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked.

To make the glaze:

In a small heavy saucepan, melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter at a very low heat. Once melted, whisk in the confectioner’s sugar and add the boiling water. Whisk until it is a nice velvety texture, then pour on the cake.
