Cinnamon sugar pink grapefruit brûlée

This is one of the easiest breakfasts/ brunch/ desserts that you can make. Usually pink grapefruits are too sour for me, so caramelising the sugar on top creates the perfect combination.

Ingredients: (serves 2)

  • 1 pink grapefruit, washed
  • A few tbsp brown demerara sugar mixed with a few tsp of cinnamon (optional- you can just use sugar if you wanted/ mix it with another flavour eg. vanilla sugar)
  • Mint, to decorate (optional)


  1. Switch the grill on.
  2. Cut a small section off the bottom of each end of the grapefruit so that it can stand when cut in half. Then cut in half. img_0306img_0307img_0309
  3. Put each half on some foil on a baking tray. Sprinkle over the sugar on top of each half. I like to cover the whole top in sugar, but add as much as you like.img_0311
  4. Put under the grill for around 5-7 minutes, until the sugar is bubbling. Do not worry if the edge of the grapefruit gets burnt.img_0313
  5. Sprinkle over the mint and serve.img_0320img_0325
