Star shaped on Christmas, heart shaped on birthday; this type of cake is always special. Cakes made with butter and eggs at room temperature had a slightly finer. We recommend a dry red wine. But remember the cake will have a strong taste of the wine used in it, go for something that you like.


  • 1 1/8 cups butter
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 5 free-range eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 12 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 medium sized orange
  • Table salt


  • Grate the chocolate and separate the yolk from the egg white.
  • In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, chocolate and egg yolks until smooth.
  • Add ground cinnamon, cocoa, flour, baking powder and beat well. Then add the red wine and cream until smooth.
  • Beat the egg white with a pinch of salt until and fold in carefully.
  • Grease six extra large star shaped cookie cutters and spread with bread crumbs inside.
  • Now baking paper on a baking tray, then the prepared cutters and spread the batter in.
  • Bake for about 50 - 60 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 175 degrees.
