    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping. From Melissa Winner, Gulfport, MS, as entered in Cuisinart Stand Mixer competition, and later entered on Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown as Ruby Red Grapefruit Cake. I prefer a glaze such as this on my Bundt cakes, so no refrigeration is needed, although Paula Deen likes a cream cheese frosting on hers (see Grapefruit Cake With Icing). This can also be made as two 9-inch layers, which would work better with the cream cheese frosting. Ms. Winner recommends serving with dreamsicle ice cream and a sprig of mint.

    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a large Bundt pan or 10-inch tube pan with nonstick baking spray with flour like Baker's Joy, or use Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!).
    3. 3
      Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
    4. 4
      Then put mixture into a stand mixer add eggs, and mix until combined.

      Put cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

      When done turn pan onto serving platter let stand about 15 minutes then poke small holes in top. I use a straw; be neat about it.
