Grape sponge cake is a familiar dish, but how can we keep the fruit fresh and evenly spread throughout the cake after baking?

The secret is to dust the dry powder on the fruits before mixing them with other ingredients to preserve their flavor and prevent the fruits from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
