Winemaker's Coronation Grape Cake for La Cuisine d'Helene

Winemaker's Grape Cake

As seen on Honest Cooking....Recently my good friend Helene asked me to do a guest post over at her blog La Cusine de'Helene. It is always a challenge to make a decision about what to make for another persons blog. You want your recipe to reflect not only your own personality but that of the host blog as well. With the shorter days and impending cooler weather would I make some of my favourite comfort foods? I decided to make a kind of Eastern Canada meets Western Canada cake where the Coronation grape is the star! The Coronation Grape grows in both British Columbia and Ontario where both Helene and I have lived at some point in our lives, so, it seemed the perfect way to unite our blogs and our passion for food. Move over to Helene's blog to read the full post....here.

  6. This looks delicious. The grapes remind me of the concord grapes that grew in my grandmother's back yard. They were very sour but made the best grape jam! Now I'm off to visit Helene.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  14. Very neat idea. I've never seen a grape cake - it's not one of those fruits that comes to mind, unless it's a raisin.
