I got a piece in August of this year and I asked when it wasn't super busy. They got it no problem and it was pricey like someone else said, but I really wanted to try it. Definetly easy to do and wouldn't book a whole meal just to try that as this was no prob. Also, wouldn't want to eat it while I'm already stuffed!

No grapefruit cake at Starring Rolls yesterday, but we had it at the Brown Derby at lunch! Just as delicious as always!!!

Will try to post a picture later. Still trying to figure out the iPad. Lol

I have the recipe from a very old issue of the (now defunct) Disney Magazine and have made it many times. There were several years between when we had it at Brown Derby and when I got the recipe so I can't comment on how it compares to the original, but its usually what DH requests that I make for his birthday.

I was able to buy it at Starring Rolls in both January and August. If you ask a CM and they don't know what you're talking about, ask them to talk to someone who has worked there for awhile. Both times I got a fairly new CM and they had to ask their supervisor, but both times they were more than happy to get it for me. And yes, it is a pricey piece of cake, but very tasty!

Thanks for the update. Did they just say that they wouldn't get it for you? Or was it busy, etc.?

Glad you got to have a slice at BD - can't wait to see the pic!!!!

Thanks!!

I didn't ask them, there wasn't any in the case. ;-)

For those who asked for the recipe, I can post it when we return next week. So far we have had 80 degrees and sunny every day!!!

Recipe.....

Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake
Cream Cheese Froosting:

8 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 C + 2 Tbl sugar
3 pink grapefruit sections
1/2 tsp powdered gelatin
2 Tbl grapefruit juice
1/2 C heavy cream

Blend cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in 3 grapefruit sections. Dissolve gelatin in grapefruit juice and stir in to mix. Heat juice in a saucepan, then add to cream-cheese mixture.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream to a soft peak. Fold it into the mix and refigerate about an hour.

Cake
3 C flour
1.5 C sugar
1 Tbl baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C water
1/2 C vegetable oil
6 eggs, separated
6 Tbl grapefruit jiuce
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
10 pink grapefruit sections

Heat oven to 350. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Form a well in the dry ingredients and fill it with the water, oil, egg yolks,
grapefruit juice and lemon rind. Beat until smooth.
In separate bowl beat egg whites/cream of tartar till stiff but not dry. Fold into mix. Pour into 2 greased or non-stick 9 in cake pans.

Bake 25-30 min or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
Cool on rack then remove from pans.

Frost top of one cake. Then break up 2 grapefruit sections and scatter on frosting. Top with second cake and frost completely. Garnish with remaining grapefruit sections.

We like frosting, so sometimes I increase the frosting recipe by 1.5. I've also halved the cake recipe, and made only one cake which I split into 2 layers.

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting.... I'm thinking I may make one prior to going so we can compare.
