Good when you make a few changes. I had several fresh grapefruit I needed to use up so I used my juicer and added all grapefruit juice and no milk. I also put in about half a grapefruit finely diced into the batter. It added the perfect tangy kick and really tasted like grapefruit. I also made a glaze of powdered sugar and grapefruit juice to drizzle over it. Made a flavorful cake with the changes!

A beautiful cake, with rave reviews from all who tasted it. I made this cake yesterday, adding all juice instead of milk, rind from one grapefruit and the flesh chopped up into cake mixture, then cooking it in a bundt pan. I then poked holes in the top and glazed it with icing sugar and juice. It was such a success that now I'm going to attempt cupcakes the same way today!!

This is a wonderful recipe, but it needs cream cheese frosting. I added 3 tbsp of grapefruit juice and 1 tsp of grapefruit zest to frosting. I put crushed grapefruit between layers.
