Sundays like these...

... are precious. Sitting in the garden, sipping a cup of tea or coffee, talking to friends or family and enjoying a nice juicy slice of cake.
Here is one of my favourite cake recipes (another one follows in a couple of days):

Redwine-Cake (looks a little boring but ... ohhhhh... sooo gooood!)


175g dark chocolate
300g butter
300g sugar
6 eggs
3tsp cocoa
2 sachets of vanilla sugar
1-2 tsp cinnamon
400g flour
1 1/2 sachets of baking soda
1/4l redwine

  •  Preheat oven to 150°C
  • Chop the chocolate
  • Cream butter on low speed until light and fluffy
  • Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy
  • Separate the eggs and drizzle the yolks into the butter-sugar mix one by one
  • Add cocoa, vanilla sugar and cinnamon and beat until the batter is smooth
  • In another bowl sift together flour and baking soda
  • Alternately add flour mixture and redwine to the batter, a little of each at a time, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  • In another bowl beat the egg whites until stiff
  • Carefully fold in the egg whites and the chopped chocolate
  • Butter a bundt cake pan and dust it with breadcrumbs
  • Fill in the batter and bake until a cake tester inserted into center of each layer comes out clean, aproximately 1h 15min. 
  • Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving
  •  Enjoy!


  1. That sounds interesting, red wine and chocolate? Not an association I would have made spontaneously :)

  2. Hey Fred!
    Give it a try! It`s really delicious! People keep asking for it because of its juicy and spicy chocolate taste.
