Grapefruit & Lime Cake

For me any excuse is good enough to have cake at home - a rainy day, a pleasant evening, the  movies marathons at the weekends, the visit of a friend, a family gathering and this time in particular great  citrus at the local market! This super easy-to-follow recipe was born the minute I saw them orderly exposed in the thin wood boxes, bursting in vibrant colours.  My mind wouldn't stop  finding a way to bring their bitter, sour-sweet flavor to a baked good. It resulted  beautifully -   the grapefruit announces it’s presence but not too brashly and the tang of the lime adds a slightly tropical zing to a cake that besides delicious, smells wonderfully!

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tea spoon baking powder
  • 1/ tea cup sunflower oil
