Chocolate Wine Loaf Cake

Chocolate Red Wine Loaf Cake

Decadent chocolate loaf cake with red wine and walnuts, frosted with a luscious chocolate walnut icing.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup FitVine Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate bits
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar

Directions

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!
