I tasted Moscato for the first time at a party a few years ago and it has been a favorite of mine ever since. If you never tried Moscato, then you are in for treat. The sweet, light-bodied white wine pairs perfectly with fruity desserts or adds a nice contrast to spicy dishes.
I chose Gallo Family Vineyard’s White Moscato with its peach undertones and bright taste for my peach and apricot cake.
Soaking the dried apricots in Moscato added a layer of flavor. These plumped up nicely.

I love the way the wine taste mingled throughout the fruit! I soaked a few extra to enjoy later with a cheese tray and a glass of Moscato as an added treat. Delicious!
Depending on your dish, you may want to try pairing it with Gallo Pink or Red Moscato.
Gallo describes their Pink Moscato as light-bodied, but bursting with aromas of fresh citrus and peach, followed by hints of fresh red berries and orange blossoms. This wine is versatile and pairs equally as well with spicy foods like Thai curries as it does with dessert.
If you want a more medium-bodied wine, Red Moscato brings out flavors of sweet citrus and peach, with a bright red berry finish. This refreshing, wine is best-enjoyed chilled and paired with light cheeses, spicy cuisine or desserts. I especially like this wine with chocolate.

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped fresh peeled or frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 12 dried apricots

  2. Beat together egg, granulated sugar and vanilla. Add wine syrup from apricots. Stir in peaches.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add dry mixture into wet mix. Stir to coat fruit.
  5. Pour batter into a greased and floured 8×8-inch baking pan.
  6. Top with apricots, brown sugar and pecan pieces.
  7. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes and an inserted tooth comes out clean.

Notes

Soaking apricots releases juices and thickens wine into a syrup. Add this syrup directly to cake batter.

  1. Brilliant recipe, Cindy. Soaking dried fruits in wine should not be reserved for Christmas fruit cake. Thank you for the reminder and inspiration!
