I love this cake, especially for the autumn season. It's got both grapes and raisins in it. I serve it warm with a ginger lime honey reduction syrup. It's very easy to make but incredibly elegant. I hope you try it. :)

  15. Bring honey to a simmer in a small sauce pan then add ginger grape mixture.
  16. Cook for 1 minute then switch off. Let the glaze cool to thicken up a bit.
  17. Drizzle glaze over warm cake and serve. I like mine with a tiny dollop of whipped cream. :)
