This weekend Mount Nittany Winery is concluding its month-long celebration of our local wine trail with a special desserts offering.

Vignoles is a white grape that is similar to Riesling and can be made into simple semi-dry country wines, or complex, sweet, late harvest wines. This cake features the Vignoles and is provided to us by Natalie Proch, wife of Jinx (winery manager).

Natalie’s Vignoles Cake

1 box white, yellow, or coconut cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 1/3 cup Mount Nittany Winery Vignoles wine
powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease round (or bundt) cake very well and lightly flour. Blend cake mix, oil, eggs, and wine in a large mixing bowl until moistened (about 30 seconds). Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick. Let pan cool on rack for 15 minutes, loosen around edges with knife or spatula, and knock pan on bottom and sides to loosen. Remove cake from pan and let cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar.
