Summer Fest: Grape-Filled Desserts

The most common grapes you’ll find at the market right now are Concord grapes, which are great for juice, jelly or jam. But grapes also come in a variety of types, including seedless grapes, table grapes and wine grapes. Choose clusters of brightly colored and plump grapes, and store them in the refrigerator for about a week. While they’re great on their own for dessert try featuring them in these more-elaborate sweet recipes.

1. Torta d’Uva: Grape Cake (pictured above)
David Rocco traveled to Chianti, one of Italy’s most famous wine regions, and visited Castello di Trebbio, where some of the best wine and olive oil in Tuscany is produced. His grape cake, inspired by the harvest, makes use of both bunch grapes and Grappa in a sweet dough.

Olive Oil and Red Grape Cake

2. Olive Oil and Red Grape Cake

Laura Calder’s moist olive oil cake gets tang from lemon and orange zest. Fold grapes into the batter of the cake before baking, then also sprinkle grapes onto the top of the cake halfway through baking. Brush the cooled cake generously with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with sugar.

3. Pine Nut, Apple and Gorgonzola, Mascarpone and Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread

David Rocco takes one pizza dough and makes three sweet variations. For his grape-friendly version, place grapes cut-side down on fresh pizza dough before topping with pine nuts and a sprinkle of sugar.
