Notes about this recipe

  • LadyCJKT on November 20, 2021

    I made this earlier today and was really looking forward to a slightly different citrus twist. I really enjoyed the combination of ground almond and polenta and thought the texture of the cake was lovely. I didn’t garnish the cake with more grapefruit as hoped that the grapefruit zest in the cake and the juice in the glaze would be enough. This was a mistake, though, as I could not detect any grapefruit at all. I’m a bit disappointed by that because a lemon poppy seed cake does not need to be served with lemon for the flavour to come through. The grapefruit I used tastes lovely on its own but this as not carried through in the cake itself. Not sure I’d make this one again.
