Blackberry Wine Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Toni in Colorado

I got this recipe by Brenda McRae off the internet. I used Mogan David wine; the recipe indicates that Ms. McRae has tried several brands of wine. It is very moist, and the glaze makes it. I estimated the preparation time. Toni in Colorado

Use Manischewitz blackberry wine for this one!! I got this very same recipe about 14 years ago from a friend, and this has been a regular dessert for our family ever since. Very moist, melt-in-your-mouth, delicious. This one's definitely a keeper.
