Consider making this delightful chocolate cake for your next celebration or simply for the love of chocolate cake.
The recipe is one that has been shared on the internet in various iterations for the past several years. I'm not sure of the recipe origin but pairing chocolate and red wine is always a winning combination. It certainly is in this house. The cake batter is made by using a cup of red wine along with the standard ingredients of butter, sugar, egg, flour, cocoa, etc. The outcome is lovely without being too sweet as the wine adds balance to the flavor yielding a chocolate-forward taste. The cake is once again a magically disappearing chocolate cake as often happens in this house. This is one I will make again and again. And, it goes great with a glass of red wine, pictured here is a Nebbiolo Italian wine. An Oregan Pinot Noir or French red Burgandy would also pair very well. Just imagine which part of the world you would like to "travel" to by way of chocolate cake.
