Reviews forGrapefruit Poppy Seed Bread
"Very nice loaf but very milk Grapefruit flavor"
"Oh, my! This was real good!It was moist and flavorful and disappeared in one afternoon. We had more than enough grapefruit juice from one grapefruit so, after taking out the 2T. for the glaze, we put all of it into the batter and upped the cooking time a few minutes. (Only a few extra tablespoons of juice.) It tasted great."
"This is very moist and tasty. It had a unique citrus taste, and it was quickly snarfed up by my family. I'll probably make it again for Easter."
"I prepared this recipe exactly as directed. Moist and delicious."
