Grapefruit Cake?

jordana Aug 8, 2006 04:52 AM

Does anyone have a recipe for a grapefruit olive oil cake. I cant remember where-- but a while ago I saw a recipe for a cake that was mixed in the food processor and used the whole entire grapefruit- peel and fruit. I think it was an olive oil cake but I am not certain.

    The famous grapefruit cake is also known as the Brown Derby cake from Disney in Orlando. However, have not noticed the whole grapefruit in the recipe- funny thing is it's canned, which is odd for Florida you'd think!

    Also- I found this one- might just be what your looking for!

      i found it online. I have been searching online and I found a recipe that uses blood orange instead of grapefruit. I think i could modify it to use grapefruit.

      The reason i was thinking about this is that I am trying to be healthier. If you know of any other easy and good olive oil based cake recipes let me know.

        foodtv has a citrus cake with olive oil, not sure if it was grapefruit or not, but it could be modified I would imagine

            You had me intrigued. I Googled "Grapefruit Cake" and found a bunch of recipes. Most had grapefruit juice and the grated zest. Several had oil in them but not olive oil. Some that sounded yeally yummy had a grapefruit creamcheese frosting and topped it with grapefruit sections.
