Grape Harvest Cake

Recently, I spotted a lovely recipe called Grape Harvest Cake on Lorraine's website.  I had some grapes in the fridge and thought it would be a great way to use them up, but alas, those grapes had already gone to God.

A week or so went by, and I kept thinking about that cake, so I bought some grapes this week especially to make it.

I am glad that I did - isn't it a beauty:

Unfortunately, the grapes on top did not want to stay there, so they sank into the cake, but it really doesn't matter - it is a fabulous cake anyway.  It is golden and wonderfully moist from the grapes, and would be wonderful served at room temperature, or warmed up with some icecream or custard on the side.
If you have some surplus grapes to use up, or really just like fruity cakes, then this is a perfect recipe to try.

we had grapes yesterday in the midst of lots of rich food and I really appreciated them - I thought Lorraines cake looked great because I have made grape cake a few times but always used green grapes and the red ones look very attractive

I rarely have grapes going spare but I do love fruity cakes, so I could see myself putting grapes aside for this. I know what you mean about fruit sinking in cases too - so often happens! Like you say, it doesn't matter at all though.

That Grape Harvest Cake looks wonderful. I have made one similar before and it was delicious. I need to make that again this fall when grape season rolls around. Beautiful!

Oh, I shall bear that in mind, Labradors can't eat grapes and so sometimes I wonder what to do with the last of them. Yum!!
