Recipe by 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."

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 out lovely. The icing did not turn out very well at all (it was like water so I am wondering if the recipe was right) and that's why I am only giving a 3 out of 5.
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.
