The best Red Wine Chocolate Cake recipe going.

Love red wine? Love chocolate cake? Well this Red Wine Chocolate Cake has your name all over it.

Here you have rich chocolate cake that is spiced with cinnamon and almost a cup of red wine. The spice, chocolate cake, red wine flavour combination is heady and intoxicating – no, really, it is. The red wine flavour in the cake is prominent but not at all overpowering. This is an intensely flavoured cake and best served in small slices.

This Red Wine Chocolate Cake is a cake for developed palates that enjoy more complex flavours. Definitely not a cake for the kiddies.

Served with sweetened mascarpone cream, this Red Wine Chocolate Cake is pure love. What an utter genius idea. How can you resist.

I was always told that if you wouldn’t drink the wine, don’t cook with it either. That holds very true here for this recipe too. Make sure you use a good red wine that you would be more than happy to sip from a glass as well as eat in a cake.
