Baked Grapefruit

Baked Grapefruit

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 grapefruit (we use pink grapefruit)
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 maraschino cherries with stems
Cut grapefruit in half. Using grapefruit knife, cut sections and loosen fruit from shell. Dot each half with 1 teaspoon of butter. Sprinkle each half with 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon over brown sugar.

Place in baking pan and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, then broil until top is bubbly. Remove from oven and place in serving bowl and put a maraschino cherry in the center.

If you've never tried it, you'll be surprised how the taste of grapefruit transforms in a wonderful way when it's baked. Enjoy!

I disagree with those comments about it having too much cinnamon. I thought it was just right. It's the cinnamon and butter together that make it taste so good.

We make this every couple of weeks... love it. I do agree with the other person about too much cinnamon. Just a pinch is all you need to get the right flavor.

Pretty good. That's too much cinnamon though. I used 1/2 a teaspoon which I mixed into the brown sugar. That seemed like the right combination.

I don't like the cherry on top but this is great! My hubby who doesn't like grapefruit generally loves this.

I think half the cinnamon. And the brown sugar on top. I made it 3 times and this was the best way.

This is the best way to eat grapefruit. You can also replace the cinnamon and sugar with honey which is very nice.

I used red grapefruit to make this recipe. The sugar negates some of the grapefruit bitterness. After broiling, I sprinkled the top of the grapefruit with powdered sugar. This recipe will not make you fall in love with grapefruit if you don't already like it, but if you like it already, it's a nice twist.
