Eden Cooks Club

Who would have thought that Eden Fantasys has a section called Eden Cooks.  I would have not believed it myself if I had not gone and looked.  They share a lot of recipes good recipes like this one:

**One of the recipes that caught my eye was posted by chilipepper.  This recipe is not mine by all means give credit to Chilipepper.

One of our better sellers was the Wine Cake, a doctored-up mix of sinfully rich ingredients. I don’t know who started making it or where they got the recipe, but it became synonymous with the diner around the holidays.

Wine Cake

3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 pkg white cake mix
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp nutmeg
3/4 c vegetable oil
3/4 c wine*
4 eggs

*Suggested wine is the cheap, strong red plonk sold in the glass jugs, preferably a merlot-type

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix sugar and cinnamon together.
Grease or apply cooking spray to inside of bundt pan.
Shake cinnamon-sugar mixture around inside of pan to coat all sides; any leftover should be disposed of.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together (cake mix, pudding mix, nutmeg, oil, wine, and eggs) with mixer on medium speed for 5 minutes.
Pour batter into bundt pan.
Bake in oven for 50 minutes. Check to see if done by toothpick method.
Remove from oven and rest in pan for 10 minutes.
Turn out onto plate and dust with powdered sugar when completely cool.

This cake smells like eggnog while baking. The cinnamon-sugar coating gives it a nice crust, although it can be made without the cinnamon-sugar coating if you prefer a regular cake crust.

There is also a ‘non-alcoholic’ version that I had personally made (due to my ex-husband being against alcohol in the house, period). Replace the wine with 3/4 cup fresh orange juice and the nutmeg with 1 teaspoon grated orange peel. The orange version is very good with a powdered sugar glaze instead of the sugar dusting.

One of the other great things you can do in the club is attend the meeting online.  You can guess what kitchen cooking utensil is being shown in the pictures and you can win a $25.00 gift card.  They have various games so to speak each month to win gift cards.    When they meet in the forums they go over tips and pointers for people who are not pros in the kitchen and share ideas.

They next meeting is:  Eden Cooks
