More specifically, a Red Wine Chocolate Cake. I have my baking pretty much planned out each month so that we don't end up with too much at any given time, or so that I'm making something for an event or to take into work, and last weekend's baking was to be a single-layer chocolate cake, with red wine baked into the batter, and topped with a rich chocolate ganache, then covered in fresh raspberries
And now it is Easter and the stores are lined with Easter bunnies, which makes me think chocolate, and chocolate makes me think cake, and if I did want to lump chocolate in with a few other favorites, I maybe would choose red wine-which of course goes perfectly with chocolate
It has been four years since I've started this blog and it has been a wonderful journey. I thank everyone who often come to visit, those who leave comments, those who cook from the recipe and those who do and come back to tell me about it
A 7-layered 6-inch round cake in colors of the rainbow, with white vanilla frosting. Regular white cake recipe found on the web, with food colors - the fun was in mixing the 4 colors (red, blue, green yellow) plus a smidgen of black to make gorgeous VIBGYOR
I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'
