Grapefruit Bars Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This was delicious. I used 4 T. of grapefruit juice, and the zest of a whole grapefruit. I iced it with powdered sugar mixed with grapefruit juice to a drizzling consistency, with about 1/4 tsp. of almond extract. Then I sprinkled it with shredded sweetened coconut! It was great, like dense cake. I'm craving another batch!

This makes a gorgeous cake!! Basic enough to make a few variations in flavour-orange, lemon, chocolate etc. I made it as written with only one sub, I used butter instead of shortening. The grapefruit flavour is subtle but gives the cake a little twang. Thanks for the recipe, this will be a regular for my family!!

Ok, to start with, this is a cake, not bars. Next, the cook time is WAY too short -at first I thought that maybe they were supposed to be a little raw, like brownies, and then they'd get hard, like a brownie, in the fridge. But no, they were RAW raw, not gooey-good raw. SO we put them back in the over for at least an extra 20 minutes (and my oven usually errs on the hot side!) and then they were pretty good. In my books, not really worth the fat in them, but still good.

I thought that this was basically amazing.. I didnt put any icing on it because I didnt feel like putting it on so I didnt. Also when making it i put in to much butter so then i just added a bit of all the ingredients to even it off basically, it worked quiet well. I enjoyed eating it, basically amazing.. it was my first time using any sort of fruit zest and it was a great experience.. AMAZING basically.. Great recipe!

These are delicious! The nice grapefruit "tang" somehow blends with the brown sugar and cinnamon, but doesn't get lost. I slathered these bars with a simple powdered sugar based frosting flavored with fresh grapefruit juice. Fine recipe, so glad I tried it!

My family and I spend part of the year in Paraguay where we have a long and abundant grapefruit (pomelo) season. I made these cake-like bars four times one week because they were delicious!
