White wine cake

Filed under: Food — Mindy M. @ 4:55 pm

Normally I’m all about cooking from scratch…BUT, I’m scared of baking.
I’ve been slowly learning how to bake bread, and I can make pasta (does that count?) but whenever I try and make a cake from scratch it…sucks. So for Easter, I decided to use a cake mix that was in my pantry…I’ll try not to buy any more, once they’re gone. BUT, it was there and I was feeling lazy.  As I was pulling stuff out I realized, that I didn’t want to make JUST a yellow cake, from a box.  So I started to think about what I could do to mess with the cake mix.  I subbed white wine, a rhine, for the water, and added half a box of pudding mix, ’cause it was there too. 😀  I made the mix like normal, except I withheld the egg whites.  When the batter was done, I swapped bowls and beaters in my stand mixer, and I whipped the egg whites to stiff peaks. Then folded them in.  What I got was a spongy lightly wine flavored cake. IT TASTES AWESOME! Now if only I could bake a cake this delicious from scratch.
