red wine cake

The ladies at work decided to have a potluck and do a ladies night so it was the perfect opportunity to test out a new recipe. I chose to try out a red wine cake that I found on smitten kitchen I have never made a chocolate cake before and it turned out pretty good the above recipe is definitely recommended. The only alterations I made to the recipe was to omit the cinnamon and I did not use parchment paper or lots of butter to grease my pan. Instead I used quite a nice bit of olive oil and my cake barely stuck to the pan.
The cake overall
The batter with almost all baking literally tasted like chocolate red wine, I ate a lot of it and I swear I was a tad bit hung over the next morning (not joking) I am thinking I will try and add red wine to chocolate icing and make something with it...Once baked the red wine flavour baked down and was almost not noticeable. The cake was moist yet crumbly it pretty much looked exactly like the pics on smitten kitchen. This is going to be my go-to chocolate cake recipe from now on.
