eat me: grapefruit yogurt cake.
Posted by Taylor @themostdelightfuladventure
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.
1 C. flour.
1/2 C. sugar.
1/2 tsp. baking powder.
1/8 tsp. baking soda.
1/2 C. plain yogurt.
1/4 C. vegetable or canola oil.
zest of one grapefruit.
juice of half a grapefruit.
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.
1 grapefruit, segmented and zested for garnish.
sift together dry ingredients. add yogurt, oil, zest, juice, egg and vanilla, beating after each addition. pour into a prepared 9-10 inch baking pan, baking at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
dust with powdered sugar and garnish with grapefruit segments.
Enjoy! xo, T.
