We’ll talk about the chocolate wine cake in a moment — first, I need to brag about my mom for a minute. I’m proud to partner with Mirum and Dove to bring you my ideas!
My mama is stellar.
I recently celebrated my birthday and we were chatting. Let me add: she was in labor for me for several days before I finally made my grand entrance. So as we were chatting, I commented to her, “aren’t you glad to not be in labor today”? with a chuckle. She immediately responded, “I would do it every year again if the end result was you”.
I knew I wanted to create a special gift basket for her. Something that she could enjoy regularly and take a moment to pamper herself with. The Dove products I compiled will do just that! I included Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner as well as their famous Dove White Beauty Bar, Dove Exfoliating Body Polish and Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash.
I also tucked in a pretty new hand towel, a floral bag, a soap dish and a fluffy new loofah. I arranged everything in a cute wire basket which I know she’ll be able to use and enjoy as well. And can I tell you… this gift basket smells divine.
I decided to also create an amazing chocolate red wine cake for her to enjoy. If there is one weakness my mama has it’s chocolate.
I’m excited to share this red wine cake recipe with you today — I know you’ll enjoy it!
I’ve made cakes with coffee before… like this mocha poke cake… but I hadn’t tried a chocolate cake with red wine recipe before. I’m glad I did — it turned out delicious!!

Then, pour batter in a Bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
