Cooking with Cocktails: Sangria Cake

June 1, 2011

Sangria Cake
Topped with fresh seasonal fruit, Eat the Love has captured summer in this amazing, boozy cake.

This fresh and fruity bundt cake is perfect for summer, and the red-wine Sangria glaze just adds to its deliciosity quotient. Already using mostly almond flour, this cake is easily gluten free. Substitute apple sauce for the eggs and it's vegan, too!

Summery Sangria Cake

This cake was inspired by the flavors of sangria, but isn’t as boozy or as wine filled as you might expect. I used a combination of kiwis, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries as my fruit filling, but feel free to use any fruit you would use in sangria, like apples, pears, peaches, star fruit, whatever you love to use in sangria. It’s perfect for a Cinco de Mayo or any old brunch (especially if you are rich person, or just pretending to be one). - Eat the Love
