Is citrus in season? Make this light and refreshing Grapefruit Yogurt Cake to snack on at brunch or dessert!
As I mentioned yesterday, I have a bunch of recipes to share with you guys. Hubby and I tallied up all the votes from Instagram and Facebook on Sunday night and the clear winner was this Grapefruit Yogurt Cake.
So, your wish is my command! I bought a couple of grapefruits the other week thinking I would use them to make a cocktail for my Recipe Redux post. Instead, I ended up making Homemade Gingerale, which is fine, but it left me with two grapefruits. I don’t really mind eating grapefruit just plain with a spoon, but I thought this would be a good opportunity to get a little more creative. I did some googling and came across this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It sounded pretty delightful, so I made some modifications and hoped for the best.
