This is a very good recipe. I add chopped pecans to the batter, and when the cake is finished, I thin powdered sugar with sherry and it makes a wonderful frosting.
I was looking for the recipe of a couple of cakes I tried in the past. Unfortunately, this isn't it. The other cakes have more added flavor. This one tastes too much like a box cake (which it is).
I've made this cake three times in the last week - all at the request of my household! The major changes I made were: 1)I didn't have yellow cake mix, so I substituted spice cake (which worked wonderfully, esp. since it's autumn) and 2) I used approx. 1/4 to 1/2 cup sherry mixed with powdered sugar for a glaze on top while it was still warm. This inevitably soaked through the cake, which made it amazingly moist and delicious!
I took this to share at work and it was eaten up immediately. Everyone commented on how they liked the unusual flavor. Will definately make again.
It's my son's favorite. I added extra sherry instead of the 1/3 c. water and also extra nutmeg. Very easy.
This cake is wonderful! My Mother has been making Sherry wine cake for years. I needed the ingredients and found this recipe. The name is what caught my eye...also had me laughing. I used Cream Sherry, which I think made a big difference. Our family always used plain sherry. It came out very moist! Got the thumbs up from everyone at Christmas. Our wine cake will be forever known as Pooter's Wine cake!!
I would give this cake more than 5 stars!!!
BEST cake ever. Thanks for sharing SharonTorres.
I won't be making this too often, only because it's too addictive! It was so good that I would sneak a bite every time I walked by it.
