  • 2 sticks & 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup & 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

Sugar Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp milk or water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 3-4 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Fruit & Nut Topping:

  • 18 whole Jasmine Vineyards grapes – red & green
  • 5 grapes, halved
  • 9 in-shell hazelnuts



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8×8-inch baking pan.
  • Place butter in a mixing bowl with the dry ingredients, sour cream, eggs, and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer until batter is smooth and thick. Pour into the greased baking pan.
  • Bake cake 55 minutes to 1 hour. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted. Run a butter knife along the edge of the pan to loosen the cake, then let cool on a cooling rack.

Sugar Glaze:

  • Place confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Slowly stir in milk and vanilla, stirring constantly to make a smooth glaze. Set aside.

Chocolate Glaze:

  • In saucepan, add 3 tablespoons of milk and chocolate chips to medium heat.
  • As chocolate starts to melt, begin stirring with a whisk. Keep stirring until smooth, and add milk to achieve a thin consistency.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a medium bowl.


  • Cut the cake into 9 squares and arrange them on a large platter.
  • Use a fork to stir the chocolate and drizzle over the cakes.
  • Place a spoonful of sugar glaze on each cake, allowing it to drip over the sides.
  • Top each cake with two whole grapes, a half-grape, crushed and halved hazelnuts, and additional chocolate sauce.
  • Serve on individual plates, or on a platter for guests to enjoy.
