Pink Grapefruit Drizzle Cake

175g softened butter
175g caster sugar
1 x Pink Grapefruit, zest and juice
3 x eggs
175g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp milk
100g granulated sugar

Heat oven to 180C. Beat butter and caster sugar together for several minutes until light and fluffy, then beat in the grapefruit zest.

Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Fold in the flour and salt. Stir in the milk.

Put the mix into a lined loaf tin and bake for 45-55 minutes until golden and a skewer will come out clean. Just before the cake is cooked mix together the grapefruit juice and granulated sugar.

Remove from the oven and prick the cake all over with a skewer. Spoon the juice/sugar mix all over the cake slowly allowing it ti soak in.

Sit patiently until it is completely cool and you can then consume it!
