Last Spring, Mother Nature froze the blossoms off our lime & lemon trees. (We love those fruit for the goodness they bring to grilling, drinks & desserts!) She graciously allowed a few oranges to survive. That fickle woman barely touched the grapefruit tree!
Having a few grapefruit to dispose of, and wishing to use olive oil & honey instead of butter & sugar; I Googled those terms and found this:
I have never baked a cake with bread crumbs before, and have no idea what their purpose is. Texture? Taste? Whatever -- this cake rocks!
I used a springform pan, fitted it with foil, greased it well, then dusted with bread crumbs.
shhhhhh -- Don't tell! -- I mixed all the ingredients in the food processor.
The cake baked nicely --
but did form cracks as it cooled.
Looks lovely on my Depression Glass cake stand.
Lovelier still with confectioner's sugar sifted over top.
This is the reason we didn't make a glaze for it! We served it with a bit of vanilla bean ice cream and a fresh blackberry sauce.
