Grapefruit and ginger teacake



Grapefruit and ginger teacake

When I spoke with Gran about this recipe her face would just light up. She loved this teacake; it is light and has a great flavour. Feel free to change it by using lemon or lime - any citrus will work well here.
 

1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
60g butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Filling:
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
1 tbs freshly grated ginger
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
120g butter
 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 17cm round cake tin. Set aside.

To make the base, sift flour into a bowl, add sugar and stir well to combine. Rub in butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add eggs to form a soft dough. Divide dough in half. Press half into cake tin.

Place all the filling ingredients in a small pot and cook over a low heat till thick. Pour the hot filling over the dough in the cake tin. Crumble remaining dough over top. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

Serve warm with cream, or cold, if you manage to have any left over!
