This cake had lots of flavor and was very easy to make. I had some red wine I needed to use up and thought this would be perfect.

A very good, simple cake. I skipped the glaze and instead frosted it with a Swiss Buttercream, which went with it nicely. This cake is very dense!

I didn't use the glaze recipe for this. Just used regular store bought white icing. This is different. Not bad, just different. I think it may be better with a sweeter wine, like White Zinfandale instead of red wine. I agree that it is VERY MOIST.
