Honey Baked Grapefruit!

I remember eating grapefruit as a kid, and dumping huge amounts of sugar on it to get the perfect sweet/sour combination. I still really like grapefruit all these years later, but I would rather not have to smother the poor thing in sugar just to get it to my liking.

I found a simple little recipe online that solve my problem, and gives a new little twist. All you need for this recipe is:

  • 1 grapefruit
  • Honey

First preheat the oven to 175C. Then start by cutting the grapefruit in half, and drizzling each half with honey. I made sure to cover the entire grapefruit, and then added a little extra for taste.

When the over is heated, just bake the honey glazed grapefruit for about 10 min. If you want the top to be a little bit crispy, use the fan setting on the oven for the last 3 minutes or so.

When the honey is bubbling, and edges of the grapefruit are golden, then its finished!

Its a super easy recipe for a quick snack or breakfast, and as a bonus, it is scrumptious!

In retrospect, you might want to make sure that you have a grapefruit spoon or else it becomes a little difficult to eat. Or you can make grapefruit wedges instead for a finger food version.
