Best red wine cake moist, fluffy, soft

Are you looking for the best red wine cake recipe? Then give this recipe a try! The cake really tastes like red wine and is very aromatic. It is incredibly moist thanks to the generous portion of wine. At the same time, it tastes heavenly fluffy and soft, among other things due to the fact that butter is whipped with powdered sugar until fluffy.

Moist red wine cake

White, milk or dark chocolate – melted or chopped

For my red wine cake I took white chocolate. This makes it taste less chocolaty, but more like red wine and spices. Alternatively, you can make the cake with milk or dark chocolate. Then you might want to add more powdered sugar to the batter. Since white chocolate is quite sweet, I used much less powdered sugar. You can melt chocolate for the cake beforehand, as I did, or chop it coarsely.

Moist red wine cake with spices, nuts and co.

In addition to cinnamon, the red wine cake can be refined with other spices. If you make it with dark chocolate, for example, chili powder goes well with it. For a slightly nutty flavor, replace a small amount of flour with ground nuts in the recipe. Or make the pound cake with homemade mulled wine instead of red wine, which already has all kinds of spices in it. If you like raisins, mix some of them into the batter.

Red wine loaf cake

Instead of using a loaf pan, you can also bake the pound cake in another suitable pan. A bundt pan and a round springform pan, among others, are suitable. In addition, you can make red wine muffins from the batter. Remember, though, that depending on the size of your baking pan, the baking time given in the recipe may vary greatly. For example, muffins are ready much faster than a cake.

Glaze, powdered sugar or nothing?

You can decorate the cake as you like. For example, frost it with a sugar glaze, as I did. You can also prepare a chocolate glaze for it. Or dust the moist red wine cake with powdered sugar. Without a decoration, however, it tastes just as delicious.

How to make red wine cake: tips and tricks

  • You can adjust the amount of powdered sugar to taste, depending on how sweet you like your cake and how sweet your chocolate is.
  • Instead of white chocolate, you can use milk or dark chocolate. In this case, increase the amount of powdered sugar if necessary.
  • Instead of melting chocolate, you can chop it coarsely.
  • Do not stir the batter too long, but only briefly until it has a homogeneous consistency. Otherwise, the cake might taste rubbery after baking.
  • To bake the pound cake, you will need a loaf pan measuring approx. 25 cm x 10 cm.
  • Be sure to grease and flour the loaf pan thoroughly so that you can easily remove the cake from the pan after baking.
  • Instead of baking in a loaf pan, you can bake the cake with wine in another pan. See my notes on this above. Depending on the size of the baking pan, the baking time given in the recipe may vary.
  • Use a wooden skewer to check if the cake is done baking. To do this, briefly insert a wooden skewer into the center of the cake and see if it comes out almost clean. If the wooden skewer remains smeared in raw batter, you still need to bake the cake. If only a few moist crumbs remain on the wooden skewer, it is done.
  • Do not bake the cake longer than necessary or it may taste dry and not moist.
