This was baked in two mini-Bundt pans. Since several reviewers noted the density or dryness of the cake, I increased the wine (Fairbanks Port, which I thought was too dry to be labeled Port) to 3/4 cup. With that and no chocolate chips [instead Ghirardelli sweet cocoa & chocolate and one Hershey's mini (chipped)], the cake tasted like a mild Spice cake. It was dry, just BLAND! NOT a hit at my office party. What was a hit was the chocolate frosting I made.
So, now I have an unfrosted cake and 11 out of 16 slices of a frosted one. Total calories on the frosted cake for 16 slices was 232. Do I chuck it, experiment with the best way to eat the frosted or make a punch bowl cake for my church gathering on Saturday evening? This is REALLY disappointing, that something that people wouldn't even offer a review of, could cost so much to make!
