It gives you an extremely unique taste with a lot of moisture, and goes very well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

My mom has made this cake since the 70's. Always a hit with the office crowd. You can make a glaze for the cake using sherry powdered sugar and melted butter. Bring your desired amounts to a boil and spoon over the cake. Read More

I was a bit surprised at how "strong" the sherry flavor was. I love the taste of sherry but this was way too much for the cake. Then I spoke with a friend who has the same "exact" recipe with one exception.....1 pkg of instant vanilla pudding. I followed the recipe again but this time I added the pudding and boy did that make all the difference in the world. It was even more moist and velvety smoothe! I suggest amending the recipe to incorporate the package of instant pudding! Read More

This cake was REALLY fast to make and tasted great right out of the oven! It was a little too mushy for my taste. If I was to make it again I'd cut back on the liquids. Read More

Delicious! I didn't have sherry so I used champagne instead. I also left out the nutmeg. Very moist and the taste is definitely unique. Read More

My mom gave me the recipe for this when I was in junior high in the '80s (this is almost the same hers has a small pkg of vanilla instant pudding too). I have made it ever since--she always just called it Wine Cake so people don't know what to think. They are always pleasantly surprised! It is the best and easiest cake. Read More

I can not say enough about this cake. My kids don't eat a lot of sweets as they are not big fans. But this cake is just enough to meet the sweet tooth in anyone. I've made this cake 5 times now in the past 2 weeks. We LOVE it! Read More
