Oven-Roasted Grapefruit

Oven-Roasted Grapefruit

My mom has grapefruit, orange and lemon trees in her backyard and they pretty much overflow. I can always find use for the oranges and lemons but I've never really liked grapefruit. She sneaks one in to the batch every once in a while. I think it's wishful thinking. Since I don't like letting things go to waste, I scoured for ways to make grapefruit that I would like. I decided to try this over roasted grapefruit idea. I'm glad I did. This comes out so great. It's warm, sweet and just a little tart.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Grapefruit
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons of Honey


  •  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
  •  Half your grapefruit
  • Put one tablespoon of honey on each half
  • Top each half with half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Bake for 15 minutes

It's a little tricky to get the honey onto the grapefruit. It wants to just slide right off. It's pretty fun to play with though, I finally just sandwiched the two sides together to smooth out the honey and cinnamon mixture.

Try these even if you aren't a grapefruit fan (I wasn't) because they are delicious and they'll make your house smell great.
