One of the things I love about the Caribbean is the variety of Citrus fruits. Among my favorites, is the grapefruit. With its sweet and tangy flavor, I love it squeezed for juice, pegged for snacking and one of my new favorite ways baked in cake. Especially as a Gluten Free Grapefruit Pound Cake.
Growing with my grandmother in the country areas of Trinidad, fruit was always on the snack list. We would simply go outside pick what we wanted from the trees and bring it up to be prepared for snacking. These traditions bring back fond memories for me and when I saw a pile of grapefruits at the market stand, I was so excited that I bought way to many.
MAKING A GLUTEN FREE GRAPEFRUIT POUND CAKE?
For this cake you need Grapefruits (of course) in any variety. The most commonly know grapefruit is the pink grapefruit. But any variety can work. We used the white variety in our pictures and one of the test batches with just as flavorful results. So no matter which variety you find, it can be used in this recipe.
We used plain whole milk yogurt in this recipe. We have not tested it with dairy free yogurt but if you do, please comment and let us know!
