No brandy?

Chocolate brandy cake isn’t the same without the brandy, right? But what if you don’t have any brandy on hand? Luckily, sherry makes a great substitute. Sherry is a type of fortified wine that has a similar flavour profile to brandy. It is often used in cooking as an ingredient in sauces and marinades. When substituting sherry for brandy in a recipe, use an equal amount of sherry.
