Chocolate Red Wine Loaf Cake
Decadent chocolate loaf cake with red wine and walnuts, frosted with a luscious chocolate walnut icing.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom of a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and then stir in the FitVine Cabernet Sauvignon.
Combine the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the wine mixture until combined. Mix in 1/2 cup walnuts. Pour into the greased loaf pan.
Bake for 55 to 65 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave in the pan for 20 minutes to cool down and then remove to a rack to cool.
Combine the margarine, 1/4 cup cocoa, chocolate bits and milk in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat, and mix in the vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of walnuts.
Spread on top of the cooled loaf.
Serve with a glass of FitVine Cabernet Sauvignon. Cheers!
