Grapefruit and Olive Oil Loaf – as seen in Dote!
Is there anything better than a fresh loaf slice and a cup of coffee? In my opinion, there isn’t. Loaves may get a bad rep for being dry and outdated, but why not re-invent the loaf to be a moist and delicious staple in our new-school world of entertaining?
We thought we should retire the old lemon and orange loaves to make way for a lesser used citrus: the grapefruit. Grapefruit has such a unique flavour that we decided to showcase it with this Olive Oil Grapefruit Loaf.
Why olive oil you ask? Because why not! Olive oil can bring such an interesting essence to baking if paired with the right ingredients. In this case, we really made some magic. The olive oil and grapefruit flavours combined create such a subtle, well-rounded, and balanced character with a bottom note that you rarely taste in the average loaf.
We decided to take it up one more level and top it off with a vanilla bean glaze. The glaze adds a sweet, creamy topper to compliment the tang and bitterness brought by the grapefruit. All these elements together create a beautiful and delicious loaf that we think will impress any guest.
We worked together with Monogram Coffee to pair this loaf with a deliciously spiced iced coffee. We think you’ll love this perfect-for-spring pairing! Check out the Dote website for more images and the coffee recipe!
