It will taste like there’s wine in there though not in the way that it would leave you tipsy, nevertheless, I will not be using this cake for, say, my toddler’s birthday party, if you get my drift... the final cake is only 3/4- to 1-inch tall, and bakes quickly.... Oh, and it’s still a one-bowl cake."
