Eggless Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake

Am not a big fan of grapefruits, but my better half adore the grapefruits and he never stopped buying them...I tried out making this cake using grapefruit yesterday for our snacks, for my surprise the addition of grapefruit turned out the cake more flavourful and prefect,i used olive oil and completely skipped butter in this cake...Its a super moist, fluffy, sweet and fabulous cake which suits marvellously for a evening snacks or simply as a dessert...Soak this cake once they comes out of the oven with a simple grapefruit syrup with grapefruit juice and sugar, this cake tastes superb with a fantabulous texture and we loved a lot...Needless to say that this cake gets vanished in less time, i was planning to make some muffins soon with grapefruits..

Grapefruit &Olive Oil Cake


2cups All purpose flour
1cup Corn flour
1+1/4cups Sugar
1tbsp Flax seed meal
1cup Grapefruit juice
1cup Yoghurt
1cup Olive oil
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda

Grapefruit Syrup:
1/2cup Grapefruit juice
1tsp Grapefruit peels
1/4cup Sugar

Preheat the oven at 350F...Mix the flax seed meal in a 3tbsp of luke warm water as thick paste..Combine together the all purpose flour, corn flour, baking soda, baking powder in a large vessel...beat together the sugar, yoghurt, olive oil, grapefruit juice until everything turns soft...add gradually the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients along with flax seed meal paste,mix well with a spatula..grease a cake pan and pour the batter..

Place the cake mould in the middle rack and bake for 35-40minutes or until the skewer comes out clean...

Meanwhile make a syrup by boiling the grapefruit juice, grapefruit peels and sugar,once the sugar gets dissolved,put off the stove and strain the syrup, let them cool completely..Pour this syrup over the cake,make small holes with a skewer on the top of the cake and let it sit for few minutes until the syrup gets absorbed by the cake..cool it completely..

Slice them as u desire and enjoy!

  11. Priya-This is an amazing cake...can't get over the fact that it has no eggs, and it's so moist, and flavorful. Must be the yoghurt that replaces the eggs:DDD

    BTW-You missed you name on the list of the awards...I did pass on the Versatile Award to you too, just have not had the time, since I just posted it to let you know!
    Congratulations, my dear friend! You deserved it a thousand times over!
