My mother-in-law used to make "wine cake" often, for special occasions or Sunday get togethers. There were never leftovers. I wanted to know how she made it, but it was a family secret not to be shared. After 25 years and the invention of computers and the "internet", YAHOO, i entered "wine cake" in the browser and low and behold, here is a recipe thats near close to what she baked. I spoke with my sister-in-law the other night about the recipe, she has offered to give it to me, but it seems its the same as this one. One difference, I doubled this batch and used one box white cake mix and one box yellow cake mix. I also used 3/4 applesauce and topped off with the veggie oil. I used chardonnay, although any dry wine will do. Make sure you use INSTANT pudding. I think the vanilla pudding mix gives it that added moistness. I couldn't find the exact frosting she made, so I used the Cream Cheese Frosting II and added 2 tsp white wine. After frosting the cake, I sprinkled chopped walnuts for a great finish. The family loved it and requests are pouring in for Christmas. Thanks Again!!
