Michelle's Story

This is my spin on a delicious recipe I found a few years ago. My DH LOVES this - and everyone I make it for flips. DH take sit to work and gets recipe requests. My SIL makes it frequently and gets rave reviews too! HALF TO FULL BOX OF JELLO WILL DEPEND ON YOUR TASTE PREFERENCES AND THE WINE YOU USE. ORINGINALLY RECIPE CALLED FOR 4 EGGS, BUT SIL AND I HAVE GREAT SUCCESS USING 3, AND THAT HELPS A BIT ON THE CALORIE/CHOLESETEROL COUNT PERHAPS. Lovely color - great for bridal showers etc. Super easy!! Could be decorated to suit any occasssion!
**I use Oak Knoll's Blackberee Wine when I can get it...The Raspberry when they have that for a Raspberry version of this same cake. If I can't get either, any Blackberry wine such as a Mogan David or Manischewitz will do.**


18 oz
white cake mix (1 box)
6 oz
blackberry fusion jell-o (1 box- can use half - personal pref)
eggs, personal pref
1 c
vegetable oil
1 c
blackberry wine
2 c
powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 c
blackberry wine (to thin glaze, does not take much)

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray bundt pan with cooking spray.
Mix cake mix and jello.
Add eggs, oil and wine.
Beat at low, medium speed (as directed on cake mix box).
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean). Cool completely.
Mix powdered sugar and enough wine to thin to spreading consistency. Should be slightly thick as it will "loosen" and run down sides.
Drizzle over cake. Garnish with fresh berries or as desired and serve.

    Hope you like it. My hubby isn't a big dessert eater, but he just keeps telling me how much he likes this cake! I had no idea that would be the case. HAHA.

    I made this over the past week and my husband has eaten almost
    all of it. I had 3 very small slices and there is one huge one left
    I am going to try a different flavor of wine and jello next time.
    Also I bought a can of blackberries, heated the juice and thickened with corn starch, added the blackberries and used this on top of this cake..those blackberries with the cake was wonderful.

    Glad you enjoyed it as well! It's always a hit whenever I take it places. It would work great with different wine and jello flavors as long as they work together. I've tried a few and they were tasty.
