So I don’t LOVE to cook, but I do enjoy baking. I find it so satisfying when someone just oohs and aaahhs over my homemade peach cobbler, or my banana cream pie, or pear and apple crisp (like I served last night to my Darling and friends). A good meal is fun to provide as well, but somehow, dessert sighs make me happier.
Today, while perusing my Facebook page (have you “liked” Trueheart Vineyard on Facebook yet? If not – please stop reading this blog and head over to FB to “like” us!) this morning, I noticed a post by Smitten Kitchen, featuring red wine chocolate cake. Did I read that right? Red wine+chocolate+cake? Too good to be true? No. Easy. True. Possible.
I am making this cake tonight for my Darling, and I’ll let you know how it is. I’ll use our Trueheart Vineyard Petite Sirah in the cake and I imagine its intense black currant and boysenberry flavors will make it even better. Click on this link (not sure it’s showing up as a link, but you can definitely click on it) for the recipe: Chocolate + red wine + cake? Yes.
