Grapefruit Poppy Seed Breakfast Cake

Like so many people who are staying home as much as possible, I’ve been cooking and baking even more than usual.  I decided to look at recipes I’ve had for years and always MEANT to make, but never did.  I’ve discovered some delicious soups, scones and nibblies that are scrumptious!  I thought I’d share this one, as the ingredients are gotten easily and it has olive oil instead of butter.

I don’t remember where I got it from, either.  Some healthy magazine, no doubt. It’s also a little different than the basic lemon-poppy seed cake.  I happen to like trying things that are a bit different.  I used pink grapefruit for this recipe and for the juice, I used fresh squeezed with the pieces in it.  It makes the cake even more grapefruit-y!

I like that it has a yogurt glaze, instead of sour cream.  It’s still sweet, but there’s a tartness that stops it from being too cloying.

Try a slice toasted with a cup of tea or coffee for breakfast or even for a light dessert, now that it’s getting warmer out.
