Chocolate Red Wine Gugelhupf

Snow on the East Coast be damned, we are screaming our way toward Valentine's Day.  So I will cut to the chase and offer up my first Valentine's Day dessert. 

A gugelhupf is essentially a bundt cake and can be savory or sweet in variety. This one contains lots of chocolate, red wine, chocolate chips and a chocolate glaze. spike with red wine.

It's rich and dense and full of semi sweet chocolate goodness. Of course this cake is also perfect for the Christmas holidays or for any special occasion. It's all on how you dress it up.

I sprinkled red glitter sugar on top of the glaze before it set as well as some mini chocolate chips. You can leave the cake plain, glaze it or glaze and decorate it, loading it up with lots of sprinkles, quinns, jimmies, glitter sugar, etc. in seasonal colors.
