because the flavors are so good

because the flavors are so good

If there’s one thing better than wine, it must be wine cake.

Last week, I had a dinner party with a few friends, which naturally meant lots of food and wine (and desserts :)). One thing led to another and, as I’m sure you can already guess, the leftover wine found its way into chocolate cake batter – the combination of which turned out to be divine.

It truly is the perfect cake, but you obviously need to enjoy the occasional drink in order to appreciate it. The wine makes the chocolate very fudge-like, giving it an intense, rich flavor that you’ll definitely notice. The alcohol doesn’t bake out fully, though, so this is the kind of dessert you only want to make for adults ;) Plus, with its fancy name and even fancier flavor, this dessert would make a splash at any wine tasting.

For this recipe, I use dark brown sugar to deepen the flavor and moisten the cake. Plenty of cocoa helps to keep it super fudgy and chocolaty while balancing out the alcohol. Ground cinnamon also works to enhance the flavor, although you can’t taste it in the final product. I experimented with several different wines such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and shiraz, and all of them turned out amazing.

This is a simple recipe, I promise. After adding the flour to the batter, avoid overmixing so that the cake will be as light as possible. You can dust it with powdered sugar or serve it with whipped cream, but I simply love this dessert plain because the flavors are so good!

So the next time you open a bottle of wine for your guests, make sure you sneak into your kitchen and save some of it for later!
