  • 1 cup/125 g cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 9 ounces/250 g seedless red grapes, more to taste, optional
  • Dark brown sugar, for sprinkling

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C. Rub a 9-inch/23-cm springform pan with olive oil and line the bottom with a parchment paper. 

 Beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick, pale and ribbony. Mix in the olive oil, lemon juice and zest and the orange zest. Add the flour and stir to combine.
