Grapefruit Pound Cake

We got some juicy, squishy (but not too squishy!) grapefruits in our produce bag this week from Front Porch Pickings. We all love grapefruit in this house (even the 3 year old!), but I wanted to find something different/unique to do with my stash. The January Cooking Light magazine had a recipe for Grapefruit Pound Cake. I have to say, I was intrigued! The aforementioned 3 year old was home sick one day this week, so I had some free time to bake.

mmmmmmmm cake!! (Don’t mind the mess! I’m not the Messy Chef for nothin!!)

Note: I am a horrible baker but even I made this without a hitch!! Score!

I was a little concerned that this would have too strong of a grapefruit flavor, but it is just a perfect hint of citrus. In fact, my husband thought it was a lemon pound cake! The cake is dense and moist. Just fantastic! My glaze was a little thin (which still was fine!), so make sure you boil the juice down enough. No matter, this one’s a keeper!
