Simple grape tarte

Today I made a very simple tarte starring grape as its main ingredient. The cake is just fruit in a shell, but works beautifully and tastefully. I would think is a great way of getting picky eaters to eat fruit. I am not a picky eater, but like it a lot! And BF already had 2 slices…

Simple grape tarte

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 1/2 lb flour
  • 3 tbsp EVOO
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • 2-3 cups grape
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1-2 spoons sugar


  1. First I prepared the dough for the cake. I simply mixed the flour with the water, the olive oil and a pinch of salt, just because a pinch of salt makes everything better. I mixed until smooth and then I rolled out the dough in a thin round. I placed the dough in an oven dish lined with parchment paper.
  2. I then washed the grape and placed it on the dough. I sprinkled the sugar on top and placed the cake in a 385F oven for about 1 hour. The grape will release a bit of liquid, so wait until the cake cools down so that the liquid can solidify a bit making cake eating much easier.
  3. Perfect cake for breakfast, dessert or afternoon break. Fruity, light and simple.You can serve it with Chantilly or ice cream to make it a bit more decadent.

    A friend of mine was just telling me that her aunt makes pizza (just the dough) with grapes. I have never had baked grapes, but after reading this recipe too, I really have to try.
