Concord grapes are a really special fruit—so intensely concentrated with deep, jammy grape flavor. Their stand-out taste makes it worth the hassle of prepping them for baking, which includes removing stems, seeds and sometimes skins.

To make the most of the fruit, this cake has Concord grapes in both the crumb of the cake and the glossy layer of jam on top. Make this for a dinner party and watch as your friends ooh and ah over their new favorite fruit.
