Glazed Grapefruit Loaf Cake with Candied Grapefruit

As I mentioned in my Citrus Salad Post last week, I needed a bit of a reprieve from sugar after the holidays and a chance to mitigate the damage done to my diet. However, after three weeks of healthy doses of greens in my meals and eating mostly chicken for dinner, my fondness for dessert has returned and I’m excited to share with you today this beautiful Grapefruit Loaf Cake!

This cake is perfect to brighten up this dreary and cold winter season. This is a rich and buttery pound cake with grapefruit zest baked in and soaked with a tangy grapefruit sugar syrup after it comes out of the oven. It’s wonderfully tender and moist and the grapefruit gives it a sweet, tart flavor that you’ll fall in love with! Being not too sweet, you can have this cake at anytime of day. Eat with a warm cup of coffee in the morning or after dinner for a refreshing dessert!
