Red Wine Cake with Cherries

, , , ,

This simple red wine cake with cherries tastes especially delicious in the colder season.
Although it was really spring-like the last few days, it still tasted really good.

You can taste the red wine out really well and of course the fruity cherries, crunchy chocolate chips the cinnamon! Simply a pleasure!

This cake is the perfect treat at family gatherings. It is also very convenient since you can bake it a day in advance and on the second day it is still very moist.

You can also use cherry juice or grape juice instead of red wine, maybe better for children.

Why not try this simple recipe!
