"I made this recipe a couple of months ago, and my whole family just devoured it. My mom said it was the best cake she had ever eaten. It's a little different than the other recipes for Blackberry Wine Cake that are posted here. I had misplaced the recipe after making it and hunted all over the 'net trying to find it again, with no luck. I finally found my copy today and I'm posting it so I never lose it again! The prep time includes the time to let the cake sit in the pan absorbing the glaze."

"This is a wonderful recipe! I have made it several times. I've also made it using strawberry wine and jello. It was just as good, if not better! I'm about to try it with peach! I also have to add more powdered sugar, and use less wine in the glaze."
"A great cake. I used StJames blackberry wine. I think St James wines are the best wines that you can buy. It put this cake over the top. I used pecans because that is what I had on hand. A company cake for sure."
"My husband tried a piece of Blackberry Wine Cake at a farm auction. He came home and told me to try to make one. I made this one. He loved it. Will be sure to make it again... Thanks for posting this recipe..."
"Have made this cake several times and get rave reviews. I leave out the nuts as a personal preference. cake comes out the same every time. I get asked to make it for bake sales and school functions all the time."
"This is the same recipe I use. My daughters just love it; they requested it for their birthday one year (they're triplets). The color is just awesome--amazing to see a cake that deep color! The glaze is a necessary component, don't omit it!"
"This is a fantastic cake--I baked it for my Aunt's birthday and everyone raved!! Thanks for posting!"
"Dreamgoddess, you are bad, you made me eat 2 pieces of this. LOL. My step mom had given me a bottle of blackberry wine (and it was Mogan David, I coudln't believe it). I dont drink wine, but I ran across this recipe. I had to use black cherry Jello. I added quite a bit of powdered sugar to the glaze to make a thick glaze. I got two cakes out of the one bottle of wine. It is such a pretty cake. I will be making this again. Thank you for sharing your recipe."
"Never tasted the cake but it must of being good as my son made this for a bundt cake cook off and won second place."
