The "harvest cake" recipe

The "harvest cake" with grape, yogurt, and olive oil is perfect for the autumn season, the time of harvesting olives and grapes. Soft and fragrant! 

The original recipe (IT-DE) is offered by wine expert and food blogger Francesca, founder of "The Black Fig".


  • 2 eggs
  • 140 g sugar
  • 100 g extra virgin olive oil
  • 320 g whole yogurt 
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate
  • 200 g flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 beautiful bunches of ripe grapes (red or white)


Turn on the oven to 180°. In a large bowl whisk the eggs with the sugar for 3-4 minutes. Always whisking with a whisk at medium speed, add the olive oil until it is completely amalgamated.
Add also yogurt, vanilla, salt, and baking soda, mixing them with the mixture.
Finally, add the flour and yeast, preferably sieved. The mixture should be smooth and homogeneous.
Butter a cake pan (with a diameter of 24 cm), flour it. Sprinkle the bottom of the cake pan with grapes, then gently pour over the mixture. Finish by sprinkling the surface of the cake with the grains of grapes.

Bake it for 30' minutes & Enjoy, warm or cold.
