  • 1/4 c Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c Whole milk
  • 1/2 ts Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c Unbleached all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350F. Generously butter and flour the springform pan,
tapping out any excess flour. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk, beat the eggs and
sugar until thick and lemon-colored, about 3 minutes. Add the butter, oil,
milk, and vanilla extract, and mix until blended.

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Add the lemon
zest and orange zest, and toss to coat the zest with flour. Spoon the
mixture into the bowl of batter and stir with a wooden spoon until
thoroughly blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix once more.
Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the flour to absorb the liquids.

Stir about 3/4 of the grapes into the batter. Spoon the batter into the
prepared cake pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
