Vegan Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake

Vegan Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake

This perfectly tender and incredibly flavorful Vegan Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake is about to be your new favorite vegan cake! It doesn't get much better than a soft, fluffy, & eggless grapefruit cake with grapefruit glaze & dried grapefruit slices on top.

The inspiration for this vegan grapefruit cake recipe came from two places.

First, way back when I went to a cooking-based study abroad program in Italy and we made the most incredible Olive Oil Cake. This recipe was one of my favorites because it was so simple, yet the flavors were so distinct and the cake was so moist and fluffy.

Second, I had been really looking for a way to incorporate Grapefruit into my baking. Given that most olive oil cakes are paired with lemon or orange, grapefruit felt like the perfect way to spruce up a traditional Italian olive oil cake. Even if you aren't Grapefruit's biggest fan, I promise you will love the way it pairs with the olive oil in this delicious cake!
