Red Wine Chocolate Cake 

Red Wine Chocolate Cake

This Xmas vacation has put me in a baking overdrive, inspite the fact that Bangalore isn't too cold. I guess it's the feeling of festivity in the air, the desire of the smell of spices and cakes that makes it like this. Last week, I wanted to bake something different, in my head I clearly wanted something chocolatey and something boozy, yet rum was too boring. Tried this red wine chocolate and I think it has the potential to be the star of any party. Different from the usual fruits cake yet has all the elements of the holiday celebrations.
