Tie One On Tuesday

When I was a little kid, one of my mom's favorite cakes was a wine cake. There was one little catch about the cake-she made us eat the ones that she messed up. So,  as a kid , the thought of eating cake, even ones that weren't quite perfect, sounds like heaven. In reality, I had way too many stomach aches and I'm sure a few hangovers. In honor of my mother and my hangovers, I give you the wine cake

1 package moist white cake mix
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup white wine (I think my mom used a cup to 2 cups)
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour one 10 inch bundt pan.
In medium bowl combine the cake mix, instant vanilla pudding, nutmeg, vegetable oil, white wine, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer for 5 minutes. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake cool on rack in pan for 10 minutes then remove cake from pan to rack. Let cake cool completely before slicing. Garnish sliced cake with a dollop of whipped cream or dust with confectioners' sugar and sliced strawberries.

There ya go! The original wine cake or as we like to call it in our family, mommy's little helper.
