When citrus is at its peak flavor this time of year, in Florida it’s time to pull out this recipe. The tangy fruit adds a refreshing flavor to each bite.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9-inch pans.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and grapefruit zest. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the grapefruit juice and milk. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
