Wine Cake (Bolo de Vinho)

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup red or white wine
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Greased and floured 10-inch tube pan

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  1.  Using the high speed of your electric mixer, cream the butter gradually incorporating the sugar.  Add the egg yolks, one by one and beat until pale yellow and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. While mixing, drizzle in the wine. Mix the flour with the baking powder and incorporate.
  3. With clean beaters, whip the egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form.  Gently fold into the cake batter, until whites are no longer visible.
  4. Pour into a prepared 10-inch tube pan. Bake in the preheated oven until a wooden skewer comes out clean, about 50 minutes.  Cool for about 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely.  Dust with confectioner’s sugar.
