A grapefruit flavored cake inspired by this lovely recipe. I swapped the lemon parts for grapefruit parts, cut the sugar in half & added a 1/2 teaspoon of grapefruit oil. Topped with lightly sweetened vanilla bourbon whipped cream and blackberries. I know, I know….. blackberries are not in season or local right now for me. (however the citrus & eggs were!) And was it ever an amazing delicious treat. Seriously. I think cake like this on a Wednesday night is kind of like magic.
With a face covered in whipped cream from licking off the beaters Luke said to me "mama, you just are the best cooker."
He's pretty much the sweetest thing ever…. that boy. Such a charmer.
I've got news tomorrow…. in the way of the big girl & I cutting off all our hair to donate…. big changes… my oh my. See you then.
