HOW TO MAKE THIS RED WINE CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

This might become one of my go to chocolate cake recipes because it’s so delicious and easy to bake. I think you’ll agree.

In a stand mixer, cream together butter, vanilla and sugars. Add eggs one at a time and mix until creamy.

In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Slowly add to the wet ingredients.

Pour in red wine and mix until smooth.

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

Let cool before removing from pan.

To make the glaze, start by melting butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.

Whisk in powdered sugar and red wine.

Pour over the top of the cake and serve.

      Can this recipe be cooked in the instant pot? How long? 35 minutes like the chocolate instant pot cake recipe? Thank you

    Am going to make this cake! It sounds very delicious! The addition of red wine is different and should add a different twist to basic chocolate cake!

  2. Bobbie says

    Hi Layne. Can you make the cake the day before and then make and add the glaze just before serving? Thanks!
