Grapefruit Yogurt Cake Recipe

Ingredients :
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1/3 cup sugar
5 tablespoons grated grapefruit zest
1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons grapefruit juice
Grapefruit wheels and fresh mint leaves, optional
Fresh mint leaves

How To Make Grapefruit Yogurt Cake :
Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Combine next seven ingredients. Gradually stir flour mixture into yogurt mixture, then pour into a 9-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool.
For glaze, mix confectioners' sugar with enough grapefruit juice to reach desired consistency; drizzle glaze over top, allowing some to flow over sides. Top cake with grapefruit and mint if desired.
Freeze option: Omit glaze. Securely wrap cooled cake in plastic and foil; freeze. To use, thaw at room temperature. Prepare glaze; top as directed.

Test Kitchen tips :
It's like a cross between a pound cake and a sweet bread, so is it dessert or breakfast? You make the call!
Any citrus works well in this cake. If grapefruit isn't your thing, use lemon, orange or lime.
Feel free to substitute melted coconut oil for the canola oil.
