Ok, on to today’s recipe.  This is a great cake recipe when something extra special is needed.  I must admit, this was the first time I had used champagne in a cake recipe.  Pink isn’t exactly my favorite color, but this cake tastes so good, I can deal with it.  Try this one for you next gathering.  I’m sure you’ll get a very positive response.

Pink Champagne Cake

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 egg whites
  • a few drops of red food coloring
  • 2 cups Champagne
  • Pink Champagne Frosting (recipe follows)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat softened butter and sugar 3 to 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.  Add the vanilla and beat in the egg whites one at a time.  Mix in the food coloring.

Beat in the flour mixture and Champagne in three alternating additions, starting and ending with flour to prevent curdling.

Pour the batter into the pans and bake 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.  Once the cake has cooled completely, place the bottom layer on a cake plate and spread about half of the frosting over the top.  Add the top layer and cover with frosting.  Serves 10-12.

Pink Champagne Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup Champagne
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • a few drops red food coloring

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, beat butter for 1 minute.  Gradually add the powdered sugar, Champagne, milk, vanilla extract and food coloring; Beat until smooth and creamy.

Enjoy!
