My family and I spend part of the year in Paraguay where we have a long and abundant grapefruit (pomelo) season. I made these cake-like bars four times one week because they were delicious!

This was delicious. I used 4 T. of grapefruit juice, and the zest of a whole grapefruit. I iced it with powdered sugar mixed with grapefruit juice to a drizzling consistency, with about 1/4 tsp. of almond extract. Then I sprinkled it with shredded sweetened coconut! It was great, like dense cake. I'm craving another batch!

These cake bars are very good. I used the zest of a whole grapefruit, but the grapefruit flavor was still very subtle. To add a bit more, I took the suggestion of another reviewer and made an icing for the cake out of additional grapefruit juice and powdered sugar. Thanks for the recipe.
