Happy Birthday to me!  I was on the road driving my mom back from Florida this year for my birthday it was not fun.  I mean, I miss the hoopla of being home, getting a cake, going out to dinner……guess I”m still a kid at heart 🙂

Well as I was doing some research about making a beer cake for a Brew-ha we were going to have and I came across a cake made with wine.  Actually I came across a few of them but most had so much butter I felt like Paula Dean.  But the one that I”m going to share with you is rich, easy and tastes divine (I believe even Paula Dean would like it)!

If you don’t have any Blackberry Wine, I think you could easily use any fruit flavor.  Enjoy!  Send comments/questions to ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

 

Blackberry Wine Cake

1 box white cake mix (not super moist – higher in fat)

1 3oz package of blackberry jello

3/4 cup egg beaters

1/3 cup oil

3 Tlb. no fat yogurt

3/4 cup Blackberry Wine

 

In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix and jello.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix on medium speed with hand mixer for about 2 minutes..  Spray a bunt pan with Pam Spray and be sure to really coat it well!  Pour cake batter in pan.  Bake 350 for about 50-60 minutes or until tester comes out clean.  Cool completely before inverting and removing cake.

 

You can mix some Blackberry Wine and some powdered sugar to make a glaze for the cake.  I liked it without but either way it’s really wonderful!!!

    I recently made this cake again (this morning actually) and this time I decided to make the glaze. So here is a tip, you need to heat the wine, whisk in the powdered sugar and let it come to a boil for about 3 minutes, whisking the whole time. I used 1/4 cup of wine with 1 cup of powdered sugar. Don’t cook for too long or it will become hard after the glaze cools. I poured the slightly warm glaze over the cake and let it sit. The flavor was out of this world and then some. Enjoy!!!
