I have a friend named Jean and she cooks wonderful. Blackberry Wine is one of the cakes she serves. She is a lady of great hospitality. You always know at her house it will be a real treat. A couple of years ago I was working on a committee to elect my cousin as District Judge (he won). Jean served a great meal for his committee members and this cake was one of her dishes. She even served me a piece on her front porch right out of the oven...YUMMY !!
