A lovely Cake made from deep black grapes at the top and a beautiful vanilla almond base with cranberries. I can happily say that this has been the best recipe made using the black grapes. I can’t really explain the beautiful flavors of this cake. But, you can see for yourself. The deep purple color from grapes at the top and the yellow vanilla base with almonds and cranberries. I have to say ,cranberries are my absolute favorite. Its just such a magical fruit and a very versatile ingredient. And combining grapes ,cranberries and almonds was just awesome. I never thought this combination was just delicious. You have to try to believe it. What best for me is that its Healthy too.


For using the grapes for this cake, I made compote, but a very simple one without any spice and condiments. Just plain sugar and pureed grapes on medium flame. Cook till it thickens just right.

This cake again is whole wheat and loaded with benefits as it has grapes, cranberries and almonds. An excellent desserts or snack and in my house sometimes breakfast. Kids cannot resist this one!

Equipment’s Needed:

1 silicone spatula

1 Bundt  cake pan
