Wine Pairing​

This will be your new favorite homemade chocolate cake, a yummy cake recipe with a gingery flavor that melts in your mouth. The perfect way to end a great family meal is with a delectable dessert that will surely captivate everyone’s attention at the dining table.

This isn’t just any chocolate cake. It’s a sour milk chocolate cake with ginger and almonds. This should be a tangy, nutty, spicy and chocolatey cake, not at all your generic sweet chocolate cake. It’s got a point of view, perhaps several. At the same time, it’s not overly fussy or complicated to make.

If you want to frost it, you’ll need to wait until it’s cool. But, you can dust it with powdered sugar and decorate it with the some almonds. I highly suggest adding a great ginger sauce with this cake.

You can pair this cake with sweet fortified wines. Sherry is a great choice. It has a nutty flavor that matches the flavor of the almonds.  Here are sweet wine suggestions that go so well with this cake:

  • Port
  • Madeira
  • Vin Santo
  • Cream Sherry
