Chenin Blanc Wine Cake


  • 1 (18.5 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 small box lime-flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup Chenin blanc or gewerztraminer, divided
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar


  1. Grease a flute-shaped tube cake or Bundt pan, and preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Put cake mix, eggs and oil in large bowl; mix just to combine the ingredients.
  3. Heat 3/4 cup Chenin blanc just to boiling point.
  4. Dissolve lime gelatin in hot wine and cool a few minutes.
  5. When cooled, add to the cake mixture and beat 3 to 4 minutes on medium-high speed.
  6. Fill pan and bake for 1 hour.
  7. While cake is baking, thaw frozen limeade and combine with remaining 1/4 cup Chenin blanc and the sugar.
  8. As soon as the cake is out of the oven, poke a few holes in the cake with a skewer, then spoon limeade mixture on top a little at a time. Continue spooning periodically until all of it is used.
  9. Let the cake cool in the pan before removing.
  10. Serve right side up.
