I do already have a few apple pie recipes on my blog, but none contains alcohol yet. I find it pretty difficult baking with alcohol. You have to add so much and most of it evaporates during the baking process. But today I thought I would give this famous dessert a little twist and give it a try. So let me introduce you to this apple pie with a hint of whisky!
Today you will get a pink champagne raspberry cake, with no artificial food coloring, but a lot of alcohol. You may also use your favorite rose wine. I decided to use a traditional white cake as the base and put a lot of reduced champagne in it. These cake layers are then brushed in reduced champagne for extra flavor and also to keep the cake moist. The filling, on the other hand, is prepared with raspberries as I find their tart and acid flavor to combine nicely with the alcohol. Let’s celebrate with this pink champagne raspberry cake!
