Fresh Grapefruit Cake

When citrus is at its peak flavor this time of year, in Florida it’s time to pull out this recipe. The tangy fruit adds a refreshing flavor to each bite.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup butter, softened
  • 1 ¾ cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated grapefruit zest
  • ½ cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9-inch pans.

Step 2

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and grapefruit zest. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the grapefruit juice and milk. Pour batter into prepared pans.

Step 4

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
