Blackberry Wine Cake

I heard that Jillian (The Biggest Loser workout warden) said we must eat one piece a day or she’ll hurt us. There you go, permission granted!

Would I lie?

Blackberry Wine Cake

1 box Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Yellow Cake Mix (without pudding)
1 box (2.75) Blackberry Royal Gelatin (Jell-O folks, Jell-O...Wally World or Piggly Wiggly carry it)
4 eggs
1 cup Wesson oil
1 cup Blackberry Wine (I use Maneschewitz Blackberry wine)
1 cup English walnuts, chopped
(Sell a kidney if you have to, but make sure you include walnuts)

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a floured/greased bundt pan.
Cook on 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes (may take a tad longer, depends on oven)
Do the toothpick is it done trick.

NOTE: if you would like to make it ultra PURDY, you can put the nuts on the bottom of the pan (well floured/greased) FIRST...then pour mixture over it.

Here comes the yummiest part...ICING

1 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 cup Blackberry wine
Optional...you can add 1/2 stick of butter to this. I don’t. Your call

Mix together and drizzle over warmmmmm cake. Oh Lordy...did I just die and go to heaven? Come on...say it with me. You know you want to...it’s LARAPIN!

Trying this is a MUST....you’ve been a tried and true recipe sharer and since blackberries are my most favorite, this will be my next thing to try. Wondering, though, if it’s possible to get out of a liquor store with JUST a bottle of BLACKBERRY wine????? Thanks, Georgia; you’re a PEACH ; 0

Oh hun...go to Wally World--they have the wine...now whether or not you can get out of there with ONE bottle, well, that depends on your thirst. Bawwwhahaha...ahem.

Good Lord, and land a’goshen!!! I just read the recipe and could feel globs of fat adding to my hips. Someone once said “look at this and you’ll go blind.” Hummm, hell I’ll risk one eye, LOL!!!!

This is your old friend Carolyn. Did I tell you I am writing a cookbook for noncooks like me. I’ll come by and swipe some of your recipes, OK?

Thanks for finally getting this into the NABBW newsltter, girl!
