After reading the many poor reviews I almost passed over this recipe. However, I am glad I did not! An avid grapefruit eater I wanted to find a nice bread recipe that was not only easy to make but really captured the taste. This recipe does! I did change a couple things for my own taste (an extra egg, some grapefruit zest, replaced one cup of flour with .5 cup of sugar and .5 cup of brown sugar).. the result is a brightly flavoured favorite!

Just by looking at the measurements of this recipe, I knew it wouldn't work for me. I read through some of the reviews and edited it to work for me. The recipe on it's own should get three stars. With my adjustments, it's more than. I used a half cup of softened butter and whipped it with the sugar, using half white and half brown until fluffy. I then added two eggs, instead of one, and threw in a little vanilla flavoring. I used the full amount of oats but I ground them down in my blender to make a smoother consistancy. I only needed one cup of flour, not three. I cut back the baking flour to two teaspoons. I alternated the grapefruit juice with the dry ingredients to keep the batter consistant and folded in a 1/2 c. of grapefruit sections I'd cut into thirds. I also added a 1/2 c. of cubed pears and a tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. This turned out interesting. Very tasty. This was useful for me as it used items that I had on hand and it will be great for a quick breakfast for the kids and I tomorrow. It's best with a little butter spread on.


Four stars with revisions (I don't think I would even try to make the original version.). I took clues from others and changed this recipe quite a bit. Used 2 cups of flour instead of 3, used 2 eggs instead of 1. Whipped 1/3 c. honey, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup white sugar with 1/2 cup butter instead of 1/4. Added vanilla and cinnamon. Left out the walnuts (didn't have) and mixed chopped pecans with pure maple syrup and raw sugar and sprinkled on top. Baked in 9x13 glass pan instead of loaf. Brought it to work and the guys loved it. We have so many grapefruits here in Phoenix this time of year, I will definitely make it again (with my revisions).
