"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 3/4 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
grated grapefruit zest
fresh grapefruit juice
sifted cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons
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!
The cake was good, although I agree with the other reviewer, it was kind of bland. It definitely needed to be iced. I made a simple icing from powdered sugar, a little butter, and fresh grapefruit juice -- with the icing, it was pretty yummy.
It was also very crumbly, perhaps because I had to substitute for cake flour (1 cup cake flour = 2 Tb cornstarch in a cup measure - then fill to 1 cup level with regular flour).
I made it in a bundt pan & it took about 50-60 minutes.
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.
This is not good. TASTELESS! It doesn't taste like grapefruit at all! It might better be categorized as, "The Egg, Butter & Flour Cake". Perhaps you could eliminate the milk and add more grapefruit juice to it.
A really good way to use up grapefruit. I added some extra juice and rind after reading the other reviews and gave it a cream cheese icing and it was great!
I tried the recipe 12/29/2009. I followed the suggestions that said to add extra grapefuit juice and icing. But I also added a bit of cinnamon sugar and nutmeg. I didn't have cake flour so I used regular flour and it made more than what my bundt pan would hold, so I made a small pan to go with it. I made it with my niece and nephews, they enjoyed making it with me and it turned out great. My husband even said it was tasty as well. A great recipe to add to the collection and get rid of grapefruit :o)!
I thought this was a good cake but laked in flavor. So to spice it up I made a glaze to go over it. To make the glaze mix some grapefruit juice and powder sugar.
