Winter delights: baked grape cake from tin
If you want to have a little more pizazz from the tin, just use a shot of mulled wine.
For the beat
For the sauce, cream together the butter, sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix eggs one by one. Mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon and mix alternately with chocolate chips and mulled wine.
Place the dough on an oiled and floured baking sheet (approx. 29 x 38 cm) and spread evenly. In a preheated oven (electric oven: 180 degrees, fan: 160 degrees, gas: level 2) for about 30 minutes. Let it cool.
For the glaze, pour 250 grams of sugar and add 6-8 tablespoons of wine until smooth. Spread the coating on the cake and let it dry. Using a star stencil, dust the cake with 2 tbsp powdered sugar.
