for the cake:
1 box Duncan Hines white cake mix
1 cup canola oil
1/2 c chopped pecans
1 small box blackberry Jell-o (I like to use Blackberry Fusion flavor)
1/4 c blackberry jelly, microwaved for 15-20 secs
1 c blackberry wine
for the "pour" & glaze:
1 stick butter
1 c confectioners sugar
1/2 cup blackberry wine
preheat oven to 350. Spray bundt (or similar) pan with Baker's Joy OR grease & flour your pan. Sprinke chopped pecans around bottom of pan. Mix all ingredients and gently pour into pan. Tap to remove any air bubbles & bake for 35-40 minutes, until top is golden and cake is done.
When cake has about 10-15 minutes remaining, prepare the pour & glaze. Melt butter over low heat. Add wine & sugar. Heat until sugar has melted and no clumps are remaining.
Once you remove cake from oven, immediately (delicately) poke holes in the cake using a fork and pour 3/4 of the mixture into the cake WHILE CAKE IS STILL IN THE PAN. Let it sit & soak for 30 minutes (or more). Once you turn the cake out, drizzle glaze over top.
WANNA MIX IT UP? This cake can be made using strawberry wine & strawberry Jello in place of anything blackberry. If you wanna "jazz" up the presentation, you can reduce blackberries or strawberries with some sugar & add a little to each slice or use with the presentation of the entire cake before serving.
what you will need:
spray pan with Baker's Joy.
sprinkle chopped nuts along bottom of pan, set aside.....
prepare cake ingredients in large mixing bowl
really well...... until smooth
gently pour into bundt/tube pan.
when cake has 10 minutes to go,
melt butter over med/low heat
once melted, add powdered sugar & wine
heat until no lumps appear and sugar is dissolved.
you'll be tempted to taste this - it's pretty tasty!
(just don't burn your tongue)
remove cake from oven & gently poke holes into cake with fork.
Gently pour 3/4 of the mixture into/onto the cake.
Let the cake sit for 30 minutes, or more to soak up the yummy sauce.
once it has soaked up all of the goodness & sat for at least 30 minutes,
invert onto dish.....
& drizzle with remaining glaze.
go ahead and have a slice while it's still warm : )
enjoy with an ice cold glass of milk.
now that isn't the most sophisticated picture,
BUT I could hardly wait any longer to give it a taste
