Directions

  1. Cream butter and sugar in stand mixer. When light and fluffy, add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and wine.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Add flour mixture to mixer bowl, 1/3 at a time, running on low and pausing while adding dry ingredients. Mix until well-blended. Remove bowl from mixer. Add chocolate and fold in by hand.
  3. Spray one 10 1/2-inch or 2 9-inch cake pans with butter-and-flour baking spray, or butter and dust with cocoa powder. Pour batter into pan(s).
  4. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 35-40 minutes or until skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack until completely cool. If made as a single layer, dust top with confectioner's sugar in a small sieve. Serve with small glasses of a red dessert wine.
