Recipe #3 Grapefruit Bread

We were bless with three bags of wonderful grapefruits from a guy I work with. He has 30+ grapefruit trees in his backyard and had to pick all of the fruit because of the extremely cold weather. I am planning on making grapefruit marmalade, but found this recipe and was intrigued. The bread turned out really good. Its a dense bread with a light citrus taste. I took a loaf into work and everyone loved it.

Grapefruit Bread

3c flour

1/2t salt

4t baking powder

3/4t baking soda

2/3c honey

1/4c margarine, softened

1 2/3c rolled oats

1 egg

1 1/4c grapefruit juice

1 walnuts, chopped

In a medium size bowl mix the dry ingredients. Set aside. In another bowl cream margarine and honey. Add egg and mix. Add oats, juice, and flour. Mix together. Fold in nuts. Pour into 1 9x5 loaf pan and bake for ~1 hour at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean.

Note: When I made it, I added the oats to the liquid mixture (honey, margarine, egg, and juice) and let it sit for a minute to soften them. I then added the flour mixture.

Note: If you let the dough sit for a minute before baking (like while waiting for the oven to heat up), your dough will get really big. The texture will seem a little funny too, but don't worry it's still good. It's just all the baking powder working.
