Use Your Leftover Wine for a Boozy Dessert

Adding a dry white to this cake makes it incredibly moist and ensures a delicate crumb. Think of it as coffeecake’s more mature cousin — it has more depth of flavor but without a showy brown sugar crumble. This cake could easily take the centerpiece at your next brunch, boozy-glaze at all. But if you’re hankering for a cake with a little less sweetness (maybe you’re a cake for breakfast kind of person) don’t hesitate to leave off the glaze. This cake is just as scrumptious without.
