Rosita Wine Soaked Cake
Weather this time of year always makes me feel ready for a picnic. No picnic is complete without a sweet and easy to make cake! Here's one of my favorites.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 (3oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
¾ cup vegetable oil
½ cup water
¾ cup Rosita wine
½ cup white sugar
¼ cup butter
½ cup Rosita wine
1 tbsp confectioner’s sugar
¼ teaspoon red food color
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a Bundt pan with vegetable oil spray and dust lightly with flour.
Whisk cake mix, pudding mix and sugar in a bowl. In another bowl mix vegetable oil, water, ½ cup of wine and eggs. Then mix into the dry ingredients – 1-2 minutes with beater of 50+ strokes by hand. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean – about an hour. Remove from heat.
Pour the Rosita into a saucepan and simmer over medium heat until reduced to half (1/4 cup). Add the sugar and butter and continue simmering, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved – 3-5 minutes. Spoon the warm glaze over the still warm cake. Poke a few small holes to let the glaze seep in. Invert the cake onto a cake plate and spoon the remaining glaze over the top of the cake. Allow it to absorb all of the glaze. Before serving, dust with confectioner’s sugar.
Serve with a glass of Rosita. Perfect, delicate dessert!
