    I've always just eaten grapefruit chilled with nothing on it. The cinnamon was very good on it and it was delicious warm. Now I can eat grapefruit in the winter!! - 12/14/09

  • Hi Dark Kitty,
    I love this recipe! I have some question though. What is the best way for me to ask you?

  • Great breakfast. I used Splenda brown sugar blend. I could have this at the office also without heating. I love grapefruit and in Florida, where I am, they are always around. Suggestion to readers, use a Ruby Red grapefruit like in the picture; they are the best ones. - 1/4/12

    I love grapefruit! I usually have only one half of the grapefruit, add another carb and a protein to make a well-rounded and satisfying breakfast. - 5/16/09

    This made the grapefruit more sweet than tart. Or maybe grapefruit is in season and is more sweet now. Either way - this was better. - 7/30/11
