Recipe For Integer Cake

The challenge this week was to bake something using a sweet dessert wine. I have a recipe for a noble late harvest cake from Trinity Guest Lodge where I did a weekend cookery course with my mom. The recipe is not complete and so I guessed the temperature the cake had to be cooked at.  I am sure we were told the correct temperature, but we were talking and drinking with the other mom and daughter team that we really were not paying a lot of attention. I decided to use wine from Hoopenburg, the name of the wine is Integer, hence the title of my cake recipe.
