Looking for grapefruit cake
I just finished reading an article in the Times mag about the Derby, Chasen's, and Mortons. But, what really got me hungry was the big picture of the Derby's grapefruit cake. I didn't even know there was such a thing! The recipe is listed, but I'd like to know if any restaurants serve it.
I tasted it (from the old recipe) at a "Save the Derby" event last year. It's really fabulous! I don't think any restaurants make it, it's a bit old fashioned.
Though not quite the same, Damon's in Glendale does an Orange Layer cake that is very good in a sweet, retro kind of way. I highly recommend it.
