Ingredients:  
1 cup all-purpose flour
1⁄2 cup yellow cornmeal
1-1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
1⁄4 tsp. table salt
2 large eggs
2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. grated lemon zest (about 1 lemon)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan, and line the bottom with wax or parchment paper. Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

Combine the eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium-high speed until light in color and increased in volume, about 5 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, add the oil in a slow, steady stream. Turn the mixer to medium speed and beat for 1 minute. Stir in the milk, vanilla, and lemon zest on low speed.

With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture, 1⁄2 cup at a time, until just incorporated. Stir in 1⁄2 of the grapes. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes.

Scatter the remaining grapes over the top of the partially baked cake and continue to bake until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 35 minutes longer.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Gently remove cake from pan, remove paper, then place cake, top side up on a serving platter. Let the cake cool completely before dusting with confectioners’ sugar, cutting into wedges, and serving.

This cake is also delicious as a breakfast item.
