Combining grapefruit, yoghurt and a sprinkling of muesli this may be the ultimate breakfast loaf. Not only a humorous play on my very favourite breakfast things, this loaf is also moist, super delicious and can be thrown together in minutes.

For the loaf
  1. 1 1⁄2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  2. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 3⁄4 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more
  4. 1 tablespoon finely grated grapefruit zest
  5. 1 cup caster sugar
  6. 2 large eggs
  7. 1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
  9. 3⁄4 cup plain Greek yogurt
For the glaze
  1. 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
  2. 1⁄2 cup icing sugar
  3. 1/2 cup muesli, to decorate
For the loaf
  1. Preheat oven to 160C. Line a loaf pan with non-stick baking paper and lightly coat with nonstick spray. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, work grapefruit zest into the sugar sugar in a large bowl until sugar starts to clump and mixture is fragrant.
  2. Add eggs, oil, and vanilla to the sugar mix and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until light and thick, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low and mix in half of dry ingredients, then mix in 3⁄4 cup yogurt. Mix in remaining dry ingredients. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top.
  3. Bake loaf until top is golden brown and a tester inserted into the centre comes out clean, roughly an hour. Transfer to a wire cooling rack.
For the glaze
  1. Whisk icing sugar, 1 tablespoon of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of water and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl until smooth and drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with your choice of muesli and let sit until glaze is set, about 30 minutes.

The Best Chocolate Cake

The Best Chocolate Cake with Ruby Grapefruit Glaze
The Best Chocolate Cake with Ruby Grapefruit Glaze
Yields 12
This is about as healthy as it gets without making a chocolate cake out of beetroot or black beans. It’s the chocolate cake I bake to celebrate, drizzled in grape fruit glaze. It’s also the cake I bake when I need something warm and comforting, served with rich vanilla ice-cream. This chocolate cake is a reliable friend for all seasons of life. Using oil instead of butter makes this a wonderfully rich and moist dairy free chocolate cake. It’s decadent and earthy without being cloyingly sweet.

For the chocolate cake
  1. 150 ml regular olive oil (plus more for greasing)
  2. 50 grams good-quality cocoa powder (sifted)
  3. 125 ml hot espresso
  4. 2 teaspoons best vanilla extract
  5. 150 grams ground almonds
  6. 125g plain gluten free all purpose flour
  7. ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  8. 1 pinch of salt
  9. 150 grams brown sugar
  10. 3 large eggs
For the grapefruit glaze
  1. 280g (1 3/4 cups) pure icing sugar, sifted
  2. 80ml (1/3 cup) ruby grapefruit juice
To make the cake
  1. Preheat your oven to 170°C. Grease and like a 23 cm spring form tin with non-stick baking paper. Measure and sift the cocoa powder into a bowl and whisk in the freshly brewed espresso until you have a smooth paste. Whisk in the vanilla extract and set aside to cool a little. In another bowl, combine the ground almonds and flour with the bicarbonate of soda a pinch of salt.
  2. Put the sugar, olive oil and eggs into the bowl of a standing mixer with the whisk attachment and whisk until you have a pale, thickened cream. This will take roughly 3 minutes.
  3. Turn the speed to low and pour in the cocoa and espresso mixture, beating as you go. Once you've scraped in the last of the cocoa, gradually add in the ground almond and flour mixture to the bowl.
  4. Scrape down the side and pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the sides are set with a skewer coming out clean, with just a couple of crumbs. Let it cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, still in its tin, and then ease the sides of the cake with a small metal spatula and spring it out of the tin. Leave to cool completely and then liberally coat with the ruby grapefruit glaze.
To make the glaze
  1. Whisk the icing sugar and grapefruit juice together in a small bowl.
