Tart raspberries simmered in red wine create a sweet-tangy sauce perfect for drizzling over grilled meats, chicken, or pork or any dessert. This sauce adds a touch of fruity elegance to your dish.


If you missed my post from the weekend, this is the Red Wine Raspberry sauce that accompanies the Dark Chocolate Red Wine Cake. The sauce is so versatile and can be used on so many things, I thought it needed a home of it’s own. Plus I want to show you what you can do with it!

Let’s talk about what greatness this Red Wine Raspberry Sauce has been used on with this batch.

We’ve used it on plain and raspberry pancakes. We’ve used it on French Toast. Ice Cream. Drizzled over muffins and the top of iced cupcakes. I tossed it in a spinach salad the other day. And of course, this cake.

We only have a small amount left before I have to make up some more, and tonight we actually plan to pair it with steaks and grilled veggies.

The possibilities are endless.
