Grapefruit Greek Yogurt Cake


I love everything with grapefruit and this Grapefruit Greek Yogurt Cake tastes as beautiful as it looks. My kitchen trick to baking a cake that turns out extra moist and creamy is by adding Greek yogurt to the recipe. If you have pink grapefruit at your local supermarket and they’re in season then this is the perfect recipe to experiment with. Simple steps for a smooth baking experience! 

To make Grapefruit Greek Yogurt Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Grapefruit Greek Yogurt Cake


Preheat oven and prepare baking pan


Preheat the oven to 350 °F and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.


Combine dry ingredients


In a large bowl, whisk 1½ cups flour, 1½ tsp baking powder and ½ tsp salt together until combined.


Whisk eggs


In a clean bowl, beat 3 large eggs together.


Add wet ingredients


Add ¾ cup Greek yogurt, 1 packed cup of brown sugar, ½ cup oil of your choice, ¼ cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, 1½ tablespoon grapefruit zest, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.


Combine wet and dry ingredients


Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and whisk until just combined and do not over mix.




Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan and smooth over the top. Bake in preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Prepare glaze


In a small mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Drizzle prepared glaze over the completely cooled cake.



Slice, serve and enjoy!



Store at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 5 days, if there are any leftovers!

Very filling and great for breakfast or lunch snack since it's sweet but you can add savory stuff too.

Was alright but if you don't add enough sugar it really won't taste great and will taste similar to pound bread.

Jaycee Squatrito

I'm on a roll today making grapefruit stuff only and I have no regrets.

Another great recipe from my favorite chief, Nina..can't wait to see the rest of the things you make!

Accidently used sunflower oil instead of olive oil but It didn't change the taste much thankfully.

Raylynn Hoffstadt

Kinda sour don't think greek yogurt was the way to go with this bread, though it was tasty it's not really sweet.

Zelda Kressel

Not too sweet but super good with some coffee or sugary tea.

Takes a while to make it but it's worth it since it taste great thx.

Becareful with the vanilla extract because if you add too much of it, it will be too strong and taste horrible.

Margo Pugsley

Instead of brown sugar I used white instead cause it was more sweet.

Whitney Oalmann

Can't wait to have this again next week when I go to my moms she always makes it better than me.
