Happy Birthday Ted!

LMR Sangiovese Cake

Harvest time is always an exciting and creative time for me.  This recipe was inspired by the unique Sangiovese grapes from Peter's vineyard.  I am happy to share it with you especially as we celebrate Ted's birthday today!

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients for Sangiovese Cake

4 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup Napa Valley Select
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 large eggs
¾ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
¾ tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 lemon, zested
1 orange, zested
powdered sugar, for garnish
12 oz. Sangiovese grapes
 

Preparing the Sangiovese Cake

Preheat oven to 350°

Oil 9” spring form pan and dust with flour. 

Whisk eggs and sugar until light yellow in color.  Add all liquid ingredients and whisk to combine.

Sift dry ingredients into the wet mixture and stir with a wooden spoon.  Let rest for ten minutes.  Add ¾ of the grapes and transfer to pan.

Bake for 15 minutes, then add the remaining grapes to the top and continue to bake for around 40 minutes more.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes and dust with powdered sugar.

It was a treat for me to prepare this recipe from Sheamus for Ted's birthday! The recipe was easy/simple and could be done with table grapes, for those of you that don't have access to Sangiovese grapes! The lemon and orange zest provide a very special "twist" that really compliments the sweetness of the grapes. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TED!!!!

What a wonderful birthday!. Laddie baked the cake using a recipe from Sheamus with grapes grown from our Sangiovese vineyard inspired by family friend Peter Kraljic. Truly delicious and symbolically significant. I savored the wonderful 2005 Sangiovese wine, too.
