Wine Bread? Wine cake? Recipe

Hi! A few years ago, a girl I worked with brought something she called "wine bread" to work. It was a family recipe, and one of the other women I worked with said that she didn't bring it often because it was expensive to make. I've lost touch with both of them, and am still remembering that wine bread and wanting to make it. I'm not sure why it was called wine "bread" (my family has odd names for favorite old recipes, so who am I to judge?) It was cakelike, super moist, made in a sheet cake pan, and was either not iced at all, or just had a glaze. The flavor that was prominent was lemon-y, not wine-y, but I believe the wine in it was the secret to its moistness. There were no other noticeable ingredients in it like nuts or fruit or anything. I'd experiment on my own, but I have no idea what kind of wine she used in it, and it could get expensive without that bit of info.

Does anyone have a recipe for something like this? Pleeeeeease. (I'm "winey", and also a dork.)
