I love the texture of this cake . It has a rich chocolate flavour and a light crumb .
The red wine and chocolate pairs well .The wine gives chocolate ,a deep flavour .
Chocolate flavour dominates the cake .
The wine taste is in there .
It is subtle and very mild .

  • Cook: 45 mins


1 cup All purpose flour

1/4 cup Cocoa powder

3/4 tsp Baking soda

1/2 cup Butter

1Pre heat the oven at 180 degree C . Prepare the 8"baking tin . Sift all the dry ingredients . In a bowl cream butter and sugar on medium speed . Add egg. Add grape essence . Gently fold the flour in to the creamed mixture three addition . Alternating it with the wine in two addition . Starting and ending with flour . Do not over mix. Pour the batter into prepared baking tin . Bake for 35-45 minutes or until done .
