remake of a classic

yumm

Remember that delicious, fragrant orange yoghurt cake?

Yes, that one. Think of this as a sequel. But a good one. This isn’t High School Musical 2, here. This cake is totally like that one. But grapefruit. Like it’s supposed to be.

Speaking of things that are supposed to be, I think this zester and I are supposed to be. Sorry, Gabriel.

And it turns out that bald grapefruits are just as funny looking as bald oranges.

 fully-zested

And just check out that pile of zest from one grapefruit. I’m loving grapefruits already.

Lick. Me.

Go on. I dare you.

 eggs-equal-delicious

Every baker knows that the number of eggs is directly proportional to the yumminess of a cake.

Now that’s math for you.

Which makes the deliciousness of this cake batter 8.16 x 10^3.

 percentage-of-cake-that-looks-like-pacman

Express this as a chart? Percentage of cake that looks like Pac man…all of it.

 coffee-and-cake

Super easy and delicious. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee. And if you aren’t a fan of coffee? Then, enjoy it with a cup of coffee anyway.

 

Seriously. Coffee is amazing.

But in all seriousness, this cake is just fragrant and delicious as the other one, but more zesty, I would think. So it’s more bitter and face-scrunchy than if you used oranges.

So, go on. If you’re a sissy, make the other cake. Otherwise, here’s the recipe for this one.
