Grapefruit Cake

Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope you and your loved ones celebrate with lots of LOVE and KISSES!!
Sending out Love from our kitchen to yours!!
Love Sweet Life and family!!
I’m finally back from out of town- just in time to spend Valentine Day with you. Have you ever had a Grapefruit cake? If you haven’t you should really try it. Oatmeal soaked in grapefruit juice then baked into a cake great with your morning coffee. I made a quick yogurt sauce with grapefruit juice, by straining the yogurt until thick then I added freshly squeezed grapefruit juice to reconstitute. Wow lovely, and topped it with little hearts. Enjoy!!
