Grape Cake Bread Recipe

Grape Cake is a classic French recipe prepared during the grape harvest season.  While most harvested grapes were destined for wine, more than a few grapes found their way into this light and sweet Grape Cake.  You can make this grape cake from start to finish if your bread machine has a cake bread setting.  If not, you can use the machine to make the batter and finish in the oven. 

This particular recipe is a batter cake or batter bread.  It uses baking powder as a rising agent and the cake rises in the oven.  Your bread machine can make this recipe easier if you have a cookie dough or pasta dough setting on your machine.  These settings don’t have a rising cycle which is unnecessary for a batter-based recipe. 

After the batter is blended in the machine the grapes are added after the cycle is over and the batter is then poured into a buttered baking dish or glass bread loaf pan.  The leftover grapes are then arranged on top before baking.

INGREDIENTS:
 5 tablespoons of room temperature butter
 2/3 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon for topping
 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
 3 tablespoons of canola oil
 1 ¾ cups of all-purpose flour
 1 teaspoon of baking powder
 ¼ teaspoon of salt
 ¾ cup of buttermilk
 2 ¼ cup of red seedless grapes
DIRECTIONS:
1

The finish in the bread machine, add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated except for the grapes and select the cake bread setting. When you hear a beep to add fruit or nuts, add the grapes and let the setting continue until finished. Otherwise…

2

Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated but reserve the grapes. Select either a cookie bread setting or pasta dough setting. Because there is no yeast in this recipe you want a bread machine setting that does not have a rising cycle. Like all cake breads or batter breads as they are sometimes called, this bread rises in the oven while baking.

3

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius

4

When the batter is thoroughly mixed add the grapes and blend together with a rubber spatula.

5

Butter a glass bread pan and pour the batter into the pan.

6

Top the batter with grapes and bake for 50 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges dry and clean.

7

Cool for 10 minutes, slice and serve.
