Gluten-Free Olive Oil Grapefruit Cake

Posted Sep 03 2010 12:00am

I know what your thinking…’Amie, you’re crazy for baking a cake when it was 98 degrees here in Manhattan all week’…But, I just had to … I had a yearnin’ for some bakin’ and when I get the yearnin’ … I make it happen. I took a nice stroll over to the newest Whole Foods Market on the Upper West Side (which is honestly my new home because I love it o’ so much, hehe) to purchase some fresh grapefruit, poppy seeds and an exceptionally pure olive oil.

I choose a few ruby red grapefruits that were incredibly tender and juicy…I simply couldn’t resist.  By the time I got back to my lil’ apartment, I had created a gluten-free masterpiece in my mind.  I leave you with my latest creation…the best cake I’ve made yet and let me tell you, this one will surely knock your socks off…
