I like to take advantage of winter citrus. We’ve been buried in non-stop snow here on the east coast and making things with citrus has become something of an obsession these days. If you don’t have access to pomelo then use grapefruit.

  • Loaf
  • 1 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Plain Whole Milk Yogurt
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs (Room Temperature)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Pomelo Zest
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • Syrup
  • 1/3 Cup Pomelo Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Glaze
  • 2 Tablespoons Pomelo Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease 8 1/2 x5 1/4 x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Line bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In medium-size bowl combine flour, baking powder, and kosher salt.
  4. In large-size bowl beat yogurt, sugar, eggs, zest, and vanilla.
  5. Gradually whisk flour mixture into wet mixture. With spatula fold in olive oil. Blend thoroughly.
  6. Transfer batter into prepared loaf pan.
