1. Rum Cake
Rum cake is extra special because it’s loaded will all kinds of raisins, dried berries, dates, apricots, and dry fruits. What makes it even more delicious is the Captain Morgan Original Rum. I can’t imagine whipping up this festive special cake without Captain Morgan Original Rum. Its intensely deep and rich taste is what elevates the flavors and takes this cake to another level.
The rum cake was first made in the Bahamas where people started using alcohol to preserve food. They also slowly started finding ways to incorporate rum into their recipes. Initially, rum was infused into traditional English figgy puddings which are thought to be the precursor to rum cake as we know it today. Nothing makes me happier than chopping loads and loads of dried cranberries, apricots, dates, raisins, walnuts, and cashews and then soaking them in a special mixture. I make this mixture using orange juice, butter, and Captain Morgan Original Rum.
2. Wine Cake
This is an easy and delicious recipe to make a moist and soft eggless wine cake. To make this egg-free wine cake, I used red wine (cabernet sauvignon) to soak the dry fruits. I soaked the fruits in the red wine for about 14 days. You can soak the dry fruits for a day or a couple of days. After baking the cake, wrap the cake once it's cooled. If had straightway the wine flavor is a bit strong. If you keep the cake for 2 to 3 days, the flavors become subtle & mellowed.
The red wine cake is moist, soft and tastes too good for an eggless version. I made two cake bars and gifted one to my mom. I have loosely adapted this cake recipe from the Fruit cake made with rum, that I posted earlier.
3. Wine Chocolate Cake
With Christmas around the corner, cakes and bakes are is the order of the day. This Red Wine Chocolate Cake Recipe has the potential to be the star of your party. Different from the usual fruit cake, Red Wine Chocolate Cake Recipe has all the elements of the holiday celebrations.
4. Bacardi Rum Cake
I had to start with a classic, and this rum cake is moist, sweet, and boozy! It perfectly blends sweet and strong flavors with the signature of Bacardi shining through. The cake’s lightness complements the rum’s oaky sweetness, making for a delicious treat. It’s finished off with a rum-infused glaze to balance the spongy texture of the cake. Perfection!
5. Dark Chocolate Red Wine Cake
This Dark Chocolate Red Wine Cake is probably the most baked cake in our family! I can’t emphasize enough how much I love this cake. The perfect counterpoint between red wine and Chocolate. A nice memory of my childhood: My mother baked a red wine cake, me helping out, and later dipped it in some milk and eating it. The steps to make one are fairly simple, which makes this perfect as a surprise for your wife, even if you don’t normally bake. You can take any kind of red wine, don’t be scared it will not taste like alcohol when the cake comes out of the oven. The red wine makes it really flavourful and because all the alcohol vaporizes while baking it’s also safe for kids to eat.
A variation which we often make in the wintertime s replacing the normal red wine with mulled wine like in our German Mulled Wine Cakes Shop. Perfect for Christmas!
6. Red Wine Chocolate Cake
This Red Wine Chocolate Cake is fully VEGAN and a great treat for Valentine’s Day or a simple date night! It’s easy to make and can even be all made the night before. Thank you to Taylor USA for sponsoring this post. They’re a long-time sponsor of Food with Feeling and I have used their kitchen scales + thermometers for YEARS! They’re seriously the best. Thank you for supporting the brands that make my blog possible. I’ve been dying to post this cake! I actually tested it last summer and decided to save it for Valentine’s Day because it’s just too perfect!
I used THIS Kitchen scale from Taylor to weigh out the dry ingredients. Over the years, I have really learned the importance of weighing out your dry ingredients when baking. It makes such a big difference and can honestly make or BREAK a recipe. I’m trying to go back through all of my old recipe posts and update them with more precise measurements so people can follow along a little easier.
7. White Wine Cake
This beautiful white wine cake from The Silver Palate is the perfect combination of simple and special. It's made in one bowl with minimal fuss and has a wonderful flavor and delicate crumb. Wine may seem like a surprising ingredient, but this recipe is as versatile as any yellow cake — only better. This recipe has long been on my top-five list of most perfect cakes. It threads the needle between incredibly unfussy and really special with exactly the kind of grace that you'd expect from the women of The Silver Palate.
8. Wine Cupcake
For cupcakes with a chocolate base or a ganache filling, you’re going to want a medium- to full-bodied red. Wines like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec have flavor notes of chocolate, and so they bring out the best in devil’s food cake or a gooey, chocolatey center. Plus, reds that were aged in oak tend to have notes of vanilla and spice, which complement chocolate nicely.
9. Mulled Wine Cake
Mulled wine cake tastes like Christmas. If the recipe wasn’t just perfect for the holidays, that's all I would write on this blog. Mulled Wine Cakes taste like Christmas. Not like. Of.
Laced with cinnamon and nutmeg, the cake is unbelievably moist from the wine and has complex layers of chocolate playing peekaboo with the spices. It’s not too sweet, has a light crumb, and absolutely doesn’t taste the alcohol. All you experience are hints of warming spices that pair impeccably with a cup of coffee or as a dessert after dinner.
10. Apple Wine Cream Cake
Line the bottom of a springform pan with parchment paper. With a sharp knife, cut off about 1/3 of each ladyfinger biscuit. Finely crumble short pieces in a food processor and mix with melted butter. Place on a springform pan bottom and press flat evenly. Brush the bottom with blackberry jelly and long pieces of ladyfingers along the edge and chill.
For the filling, rinse the apples, quarter and remove cores and grate roughly. Combine calvados and lemon juice and chill. Soften gelatin in cold water. Separate eggs and beat yolks with sugar, vanilla sugar and wine in a bowl over a pot of hot (not boiling) water until creamy. Add squeezed gelatin and stir to dissolve. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Whip heavy cream and egg whites with salt until stiff. Add apples into the egg yolk cream mixture before it begins to gel. Then fold in whipped cream and egg whites, pour into the springform pan, smooth and chill for at least 4 hours.
