Black woman with cheese and grapes

I did this blackmail to shoot two rabbits at once: because we were going to go on a mini-vacation, I had to solve the leftovers from the fridge but also to do something good to pack for the trip.

I was very pleased with the result. I got one black with cheese with fluffy top, flavored with a little rum. The cream cheese is also very tasty and fragrant with lemon peel, and the grapes you meet through the slices of blackberry make all the delight of this cake.

I also used black and white grapes, for a more beautiful look, but you can use only one variety, or you can use other seasonal fruits: plums, peaches, apples, pears.

Also with seasonal fruits, I recommend you to try the recipe for rustic pie (galette) with peaches and grapes. Is wonderful!

Returning to our recipe, I think this blackberry with cheese and grapes will be preferred by the whole family. It is fluffy, slightly moist, suitable for sweet and fragrant. The children will love it and I think they will be very happy to receive a piece of cake for dessert or in the school package.

It's a spicy cake, with handy ingredients very suitable for a weekend day when the whole family gathers at the table.

It's also a very good dessert. The combination of colors in autumn shades makes it very appetizing. It will be a delight for any occasion, especially since it fits just as well with a coffee, but also with a cup of hot tea.
