Momma’s Wine Cake
This simple cake works perfectly during the holidays, on a buffet table or in a picnic basket! And you won’t believe the aroma that comes from your oven during baking! The alcohol bakes off and leaves just the flavor. It’s very moist and has been a favorite birthday request in our house for over 20 years!
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- 1 (18.25 ounce) package moist white cake mix
- 1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- ¾ cup white wine
- 4 eggs
Variation: You can also “flour” the pan after it’s been greased with cocoa powder or a cinnamon sugar mixture for a textured crust. Simply fill a clean salt shaker for easy application. This will eliminate that “white stuff” on the outside of your baked cake which makes for a prettier cake.
