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.

  1. My “DIL” (soon hopefully) & I love baking w flowers, fruits, & now more with wine…all together. And we generally use them to help promote baking with goose eggs (sometimes ducks). Sadly I just lost both my geese, 1 hand raised, so i use up what I have left, transition to my duck eggs as I heal & decide whether to get more geese… BUT, what I do have left will go in to trying this recipe…

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
