Very moist and easy to prepare cake. I used White Zinfandel which was fine, but I may experiment with different wines next time. Will make again. Thank you!

This is a favorite of mine. I've made it a bunch of times for our family and for parties. People always rave about this dessert. I've for the most part followed the recipe, but have on occassion added a little more wine to my glaze. You can't go wrong with this cake.

I have made this recipe now several times and it is a HUGE HIT! Everyone always wants the recipe. It has a nice spice flavor that goes well around the holidays and it is very moist. I loved having it for breakfast with my coffee...the wine glaze is the most irresistable part!! It was even a favorite at a dessert exchange I took it to. I have always followed the recipe as indicated except for one time when I did not have any pecans. It is better with the 1/2 cup nuts.
