Concord Grape Cake
- Grapes were weighed with stems.
- Concord grapes' skins slip off really easily, which is great for the jam portion of this recipe, but a bit tedious for the cake part. Use a sharp paring knife to cut the grapes in half and use its tip to help remove the seeds. If the skins fall off, don't worry—include them in the mixture anyway as they will melt perfectly into the cake during baking.
- Concord grapes are incredibly jam-like and sweet--do not substitute other varieties of grapes in this recipe.
