“This cake is good when you don't want to make something too sweet with cream and icing and stuff. The sweetness comes from just cinnamon, sugar, and a little grapefruit. Use grapefruit slices for garnish. You can use honey with grapefruit zest instead of the powdered sugar and water if you don't like sugary glazes.”

Original recipe yields 1 - 9x5 inch loaf

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition then stir in the grapefruit juice. Mix in the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. Pour resulting batter into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick or small knife inserted in the crown comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  4. While the cake is baking, prepare the icing. Place the sugar in a bowl and gradually stir in the water. Add the grapefruit juice and salt; pour over warm cake. It should form a glaze as it cools.

I liked how the cake turned out, however, just to warn bakers like me the ingrediants list included milk but in the directions it does not say to add milk. I added it anyway and the cake turned out lovely. The icing did not turn out very well at all (it was like water so I am wondering if the recipe was right) and that's why I am only giving a 3 out of 5.

My family loved this cake! I did make a couple of changes. Instead of adding a 1/2 c milk, I used grapefruit juice. For the glaze, I used powdered sugar mixed with grapefruit juice.
