In Tuscany at harvest time, grape cakes are common and popular. So for my last March “Sweet Taste of Saturday” recipe I’d like to give a nod to my Italian heritage by sharing this recipe that I altered slightly from “Vegetarian Times.” Since this cake is probably as close to Tuscany as I will get any time soon, it will have to suffice!
Blend together flour, ground almonds, corn meal, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl mix oil, 3/4 cup brown sugar and almond extract. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the sour cream. Add the flour mixture and mix well.
Bake in a greased 9” springform pan for 10 minutes at 350ºF.
Remove and evenly spread the grapes on top. Mix the white sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar together and sprinkle on top of the grapes.
Bake for 30-35 more minutes. Let cool completely.
Recipe slightly adapted from Vegetarian Times.
This deliciously fluffy, vegan cake is perfect for using Thanksgiving leftovers. Aside from the cranberry sauce and chocolate chips, it’s almost entirely sweetened with fruit—truly healthy enough for breakfast! If you haven’t tried baking with date paste yet, this is a great recipe to start with!
