About this recipe: An easy way to enjoy grapefruit. You can always add less sugar and butter each time you make it. Before you know it - you'll be eating grapefruit with just a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon.


Serves: 8 

  • 4 grapefruits
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon caster or brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat the oven grill.
  2. Cut the grapefruits in half, and use a small serrated knife to cut out the sections in the halves. Spoon the sections and juice into a bowl, then scrape out all of the remaining thick skins and pulp. Spoon the sections from the bowl back into the halves. This is best done one half at a time.
  3. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top of each grapefruit half, about 1/2 a teaspoon or less on each. Dot with butter, if desired. Place the halves on a baking tray.
  4. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes, until the butter is melted and sugar is starting to turn brown.
