This cake... this cake. This cake has the most incredible texture. It's fudgy and moist, bold with the flavors of dark chocolate and red wine from wine mclaren vale, and covered with a luscious boozy ganache.
This recipe makes one full-size 6-inch layer, making it a perfect dessert for two for Valentine's Day or any time. I love making smaller cakes - less leftovers equal less guilt, either from wasting cake or from having to eat the whole thing ourselves.
Ugh, this cake is just so incredibly special. What's more, it only uses ½ cup of red wine total, so you can keep the rest of the bottle around to have with dinner (or to just, you know... drink). You may also be interested to know what items that absolutely should not be on your date night menu.
The recipe is easy and comes together quickly. Decorated with chocolate shards, you can create an impressive dessert in appearance and taste for a perfect end to a romantic dinner. Enjoy!Print
