  • I've made all three versions with good results. Does make a thinner glaze, so I usually add powdered sugar to thicken to a spreadable frosting. KAF boiled cider is a nice ingredient to have on hand. Adds a lots of flavor without much effort. Thanks!

  • I made the chocolate glaze for King Arthur's Ultimate Chocolate Doughnuts. It is excellent. The glaze is smooth and intensely chocolate and compliments the doughnuts very well. The amount is just perfect for a batch of six doughnuts.
