Regardless of the time of year I’m a huge grapefruit fan – I nearly die with excitement when I spot a grapefruit Fuju in summer and always have a bottle of fresh grapefruit juice on hand during the winter months. And baked pink grapefruit for dessert? Always a good idea.
But despite being a big grapefruit eater I’ve never actually baked with the stuff, which when you think about it is pretty silly. After all, lemon cake, cupcakes and slice are all totally delicious, right? So armed with a couple of fresh pink grapefruits I decided to set things right and bake a tangy, citrus cupcake packed with all the beautiful flavour of pink grapefruit.
And just like that, these pink grapefruit cupcakes with tangy Swiss meringue buttercream were born.
