Whew, this week has been exhausting for me so I’m so excited to bring you grapefruit scones recipe. Luckily for me Maddie Grace goes to school twice a week which gives me a few hours to myself, and I like to use that time for one of my favorite things – baking. I’m a big fan of grapefruit, and for some reason seem to like it even more than normally this pregnancy, so I knew that I wanted to whip up with something delicious with grapefruit this week. One of my favorite things to bake and play around with adding new flavors in is scones, and these ones came out so delicious using grapefruit that I’m thrilled to share with you the recipe today.
Here’s what you need:
1 Cup Fresh Squeezed Grapefruit Juice (I used 2 Wonderful Sweet Scarletts Grapefruit)
1 Tablespoon Freshly Grated Grapefruit Zest
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1 Stick Butter, Cubed
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 450 Degrees F and grease a scone pan (don’t have one? find one here).
Using an electric mixer, slowly combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt until well mixed. Using a pastry mixer attachment, add the butter and beat on medium-high until mixture is crumbly.
Turn the mixer speed to medium-low and add in all except a splash of the grapefruit juice and the zest. Keep mixing until dough is moist.
Divide dough into scone pan and press flat. If using a cookie sheet, take dough and create about 10 pieces and form into the shape of triangles.
Bake 17-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top. While baking, add the remaining grapefruit juice to powdered sugar, just enough to make the powdered sugar wet, and mix together for the frosting.
Remove scones from oven. Immediately coat with frosting. Allow to cool and enjoy!
I used Wonderful Sweet Scarletts to create these scones – they’re a new brand of Texas Red Grapefruits that are naturally sweet so no need to add sugar when you eat them (if you are one of the people like my husband who thinks grapefruit needs sugar). Half a grapefruit is only 60 calories and provides 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C!

Yes, I love Grapefruit. I love to eat the Grapefruit plain or in Grapefruit juice form. I haven't tried baking with it but the Scones look really good.
I am such a huge fan of grapefruit, but I would never have thought to use the this way. Brilliant!
