Strawberry grape pie Quick and easy recipe
Cake with strawberry grapes (American grape), inspired by the Bertolina cake, this is a reinterpretation to honor the presence, in this period, of a type of grape that I adore, the strawberry grape! This cake is perfect as a breakfast dessert or for a snack: there is no butter, replaced by a little seed oil, and there is also little sugar (80 g in total) if you want, if you prefer, sugar can be increased to 100-120 grams. I have not deprived the grapes of the seeds, which among other things are only good! If you want and with a little patience, you can remove the seeds, or prefer a type of grape without seeds. This base is also perfect for desserts with apples, plums, or with a few teaspoons of jam here and there. You can also use half 00 flour and half rice flour, for a more crumbly dessert.
Ingredients for a 22 cm cake pan
- 300 gr of strawberry grapes
- 200 ml of whole milk
- 300 grams of flour 00
- 70 grams of sugar (+ 2 tablespoons on the surface)
- 50 gr of seed oil (I peanut)
- 1 egg
- 1 sachet of baking powder (16 g)
- 1 pinch of salt
The first thing to do is wash and shell the strawberry grapes, then put them on a sheet of absorbent paper to dry them (if we prefer to remove the seeds we can do it after drying them, we cut them in half and remove the seeds ... hard work !)
Put the sugar (70 g) and the egg in a bowl, whisk with the electric whisk until the mixture becomes light and fluffy, add the oil and salt,
continue to mix, then incorporate the sifted flour and yeast, incorporate in 2 stages alternating the flour with the milk (200 ml).
add a part of the strawberry grapes to the mixture and stir gently with a spatula.
Pour the mixture into a greased and floured cake pan (I used a hinged one). We level.
We add the remaining strawberry grapes to the surface, dipping them a little in the dough. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of granulated or brown sugar to the surface, which will create a crunchy and sweet crust when cooked.
We bake at 180 ° in a static oven for about 35 minutes. Always do the toothpick test to check the internal cooking of the cake.
Let cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
Enjoy your meal!
