This is a great way to use up grapes you forgot about in the back of the refrigerator. Not that we’re speaking from experience.
Olive Oil and Grape Cakes
- 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup dry polenta
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- about a half cup of seedless red grapes
Preheat to 350. Butter two-three 12 -ounce dishes or a bread loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, polenta, sugar, baking powder, and salt, stir to blend. Create a well in the center and pour in the egg, oil and milk. Gently fold liquids into flour mixture until just blended. Scrape batter into pans; spread evenly. Dot the top with grapes, pushing them in until they’re even with or just slightly above the batter. Bake cake until tester inserted into center comes out clean and cake pulls away from sides of pan, about 25-30 minutes.
