I get the urge to do layer cakes from time to time. But I´m so crappy with the final decoration that my mind images are usually different from what I finally bake. I don´t complain really, there´s something appealing about baking a simple cake. It´s my favorite type.
This cake is the result of chocolate and red wine being such a great combination. Whenever I have some left over wine, and it doesn´t end up in a tomato sauce or boeuf bourguignon, I bake a cake that caught my attention from the first minute; it´s from this trendsetting blog so you know it´s good. Deb talks about it being `the real red velvet cake´, because the color is achieved without any food coloring. It is the perfect recipe for some red wine that will eventually be thrown away. Then I saw these brownies and once again marveled at the combination.
