Fresh Grapefruit Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
