eat me: grapefruit yogurt cake.

Happy Wednesday!  So, you know that's kind of exciting.  Want to know what else is exciting?



I don't really know where it came from, but all of a sudden one afternoon it struck me that grapefruit is like, always left out of desserts.  Orange is in everything.  Lemon has a square.  Lime has a pie.  And grapefruit has nothing.  At least nothing I've tasted.  How incredibly unfair.  I decided this needed to be fixed immediately and the result is a delicious one.
This cake is super simple- one of the only things I bake that can be thrown together in one bowl - and super summery.  It's light, and moist, not super sweet and the citrusy taste is nice and refreshing.  And it has yogurt in it.  So it's healthy!! Sort of.
