Mulled Wine Chocolate Cake Recipe Ingredients; • Mulled wine: • 600ml red wine • 100g sugar • 60g sultanas • 6 cardamon pods • 6 cloves • 1 stick cinnamon • freshly squeezed juice of an orange Cake: • 230g good quality dark chocolate • 150g unsalted butter • 400 ml mulled wine • 2 large eggs • 160g sugar • 260g self raising flour Ganache: • 200ml mulled wine • 400g good quality dark chocolate Method: • Add all the mulled wine ingredients into a saucepan and gently simmer for 30 mins. Strain the wine keeping the sultanas but discarding the cloves, cardamons and cinnamon. • Grease and line a 7" cake tin. • Preheat the oven to 170C/325F • Place 400ml of the mulled wine, the chocolate and the butter into a saucepan and gently heat until the chocolate and butter have melted. Leave to cool slightly. • In a bowl lightly beat the eggs, slowly add the melted chocolate mixture beating well. • Beat in the flour and sugar. • Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 40-45 mins until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin. • Melt the chocolate and beat it as you slowly pour in the wine, (which should also be hot.) Beat until they are combined. • Take half the ganache and stir in the sultanas. • Cut the cake in half and pour over the ganache with the sultanas. Put it into the fridge to harden. • Place the other half of the cake on top (I turn the cake upside down so the top becomes the bottom as you may find it cracks a little) and pour over the rest of the ganache. • Decorate by splashing the cake with edible gold paint.
