Red wine cake

Irresistible vegan sponge cake with red wine, cocoa and icing.

Vegan red wine cake

Red wine cake is an absolute first on There is not yet a single recipe on this site with Alcohol but with this fine cake I just couldn’t help myself. The great, red color of the frosting was so appealing to me that I couldn’t resist. Thanks to Corona, we are all more at home again and can devote ourselves to baking. The Christmas markets remain closed and therefore this time also the mulled wine is drunk at home. Add to that a slice of red wine cake and all is right with the world again.

Do you like drinking red wine? To be honest, I like to treat myself to a glass now and then and enjoy it especially in winter in front of the crackling fireplace. To be honest, you can’t really taste the alcohol in the red wine cake. If you absolutely do not like alcohol, you can also use a non-alcoholic wine or make a trial with unsweetened grape juice make. Otherwise, the cake is a simple sponge cake that is ready in no time.

I make the cake low fat and replace part of the margarine with soy yogurt. Margarine, soy yogurt, raw cane sugar, bourbon vanilla, spelt flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, cinnamon, cocoa powder, red wine and dark vegan chocolate drops. This is all worked into an even batter and allowed to bake in the oven for 50 minutes until the cake is nicely risen, soft on the inside and crisp on the outside.

As always, making the cake is quick and easy, this time with my Magimix. However, it also works wonderfully with a normal mixing bowl and a whisk. Spelt flour, cocoa powder, raw cane sugar, flaxseed eggs, melted margarine, baking powder, bourbon vanilla, salt, cinnamon and soy yogurt. Finally, I add the red wine and the dough is ready. Almost, because at the very end I still dark, vegan chocolate drops under, because you treat yourself nothing else. Put it in the cake pan and put it in the oven. Once the cake is baked, it may be cooled and frosted. For the frosting, I use powdered sugar and red wine, which makes a beautiful pink color.

Tip: When making the frosting, add the red wine with extreme care. You quickly use too much of the liquid and the icing becomes too thin.

That’s about it for our cake today. I haven’t tried a gluten-free version yet, if you do, I’d love to hear back in the comments below.
