Red Wine Chocolate Cake is a decadent chocolate bundt cake that is as delicious as it is easy to make. The red wine in the batter gives this cake a sophisticated flair, making it a wonderful finale to your Holiday meal, or any special occasion.
This week Sunday Supper partnered with Gallo Family Vineyards to share Memorable Holiday Meals: Holiday Traditions and Recipes using wine in the recipe. When it comes to memorable Holiday recipes, a cake always stands out as something special. So when we received two bottles of wine from them – Moscato and Cabernet Sauvignon – this Red Wine Chocolate Cake came to mind immediately. Their full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has tastes of rich black fruit and spice, which I thought would complement the chocolate perfectly.
The result was nothing short of spectacular. This Red Wine Chocolate Cake was a beautiful, fluffy chocolate cake with red wine flavor throughout. The cake was just perfect as-is, so I served it with a simple dusting of powdered sugar, a dollop of whipped cream on the side and dressed up the plate with some fresh raspberries. Simple, sophisticated, superb! This Red Wine Chocolate Cake would definitely be a memorable addition to your menu this Holiday season!
