Simple Spice Cake With a Hint of Grapefruit

Grapefruit Girl

"This cake is good when you don't want to make something too sweet with cream and icing and stuff. The sweetness comes from just cinnamon, sugar, and a little grapefruit. Use grapefruit slices for garnish. You can use honey with grapefruit zest instead of the powdered sugar and water if you don't like sugary glazes."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition then stir in the milk and grapefruit juice. Mix in the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. Pour resulting batter into a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick or small knife inserted in the crown comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  4. While the cake is baking, prepare the icing. Place the sugar in a bowl and gradually stir in the water. Add the grapefruit juice and salt; pour over warm cake. It should form a glaze as it cools.

I liked how the cake turned out, however, just to warn bakers like me the ingrediants list included milk but in the directions it does not say to add milk. I added it anyway and the cake turned ...

My family loved this cake! I did make a couple of changes. Instead of adding a 1/2 c milk, I used grapefruit juice. For the glaze, I used powdered sugar mixed with grapefruit juice.

I was in a hurry and just followed the instructions with out really paying attention and it didn't turn out very good.
