Red Wine Cake

Red Wine Cake

Harmony Dame

This is my interpretation of a cake my friend in Germany has traditionally every year. It's delicious! You may adorn it with icing, candy or fruit. We like to frost it with buttercream frosting.

This is delicious-- almost has the consistency of a chocolate chip muffin, so I don't think frosting is necessary.

The cake was very dense and needed the frosting that I added. It was good but not sure I would make it again real soon.

Potential! The flavor complexity of the red wine & chocolate was great, I would make sure to use a full-bodied wine with chocolate or berry notes. Mine too came out thick and dry, but I'm 100% sure I've figured out why: I tried to cream the butter sugar & eggs together at the same time and all the liquid made the butter clump so I over beat it and the eggs filled out. I bet if I creamed the butter and sugar THEN gradually added the eggs I could get that thick gooey brownie-like consistency in the picture. I'll keep trying!
