Maple Pecan Glaze

Maple Pecan Glaze

Diana Rattray
This is an easy maple glaze for bundt cake, or use it as a bread pudding sauce or sauce for a snack cake.


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pecan pieces (finely chopped pecans), optional


In a small saucepan, combine the butter, maple syrup, and cream; bring to a boil.

Continue to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and sift the confectioners' sugar into the hot mixture. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for about 15 to 20 minutes, until slightly thickened. Stir in the finely chopped pecans, if using. Drizzle over the cooled cake.

Sweet Glaze, Member margies2001

This is a very nice glaze recipe. I put it over a pumpkin spice bundt. The recipe doesn't state this, but I believe the butter needs to be melted. My glaze did not turn out clear like the picture shows. My glaze was slightly white. It was very delicious, though, with a strong maple flavor. It needs to be a medium consistancy to poor. At first it was too thick (more like frosting). Then I put it in the microwave and it was too thin. After it cooled a bit, it was perfect.
