Easy basic powdered sugar glazeBasic powdered sugar glaze is very simple and wonderful to drizzle over any kind of cake, muffins, breads, cinnamon rolls, waffles or any baked goods where you just want to add a little something extra or a little more sweetness.  This is not a frosting or icing.  It is a drizzle or glaze.  You can also double this recipe or even triple if you want to glaze something large.  We have hundreds of DIY, make your own tips on our site like this for you to check out.

1 cup white powdered sugar

3 to 4 tablespoons milk (I use 2%)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Put sugar in a bowl and whisk in milk and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth.  You can add more or less milk or sugar to get the consistency you want.  When I add the vanilla extract, I usually use the clear vanilla extract to keep from darkening the glaze.  You can sift the powdered sugar if you want.  I don’t usually do this.  I just make sure it is mixed well and smooth with no lumps.  I use a pitcher to drizzle the glaze over my baked goods because I think it works better than just pouring.  This makes about 1 cup of glaze.
