Grapefruit Drizzle Cake
  • Cake
  • 225g softened unsalted butter
  • 225g golden caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • Zest of 2 red grapefruit
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • Grapefruit Drizzle
  • Juice of 1 red grapefruit
  • 85g caster sugar
  1. 1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. 2. Beat together the butter and caster sugar until pale and creamy
  3. 3. Add the eggs, one at a time, slowly mixing through.
  4. 4. Sift in the flour, then add grapefruit zest and mix until well combined
  5. 5. Line a loaf tin then spoon in the mixture and level the top with a spoon
  6. 6. Bake for 45-50 mins until a thin skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  7. 7. While the cake is cooling in its tin, mix together the lemon juice and caster sugar to make the drizzle
  8. 8. Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer or fork, and then pour over the drizzle – the juice will sink in and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping
