Upside-down cake doesn't have to be made with pineapple. Grapefruit gives a bittersweet flavor to this rendition of a down-home classic.

Cook's Notes

We made spice cake rather than the yellow cake typical of upside-down cakes. In place of grapefruit, you can use apricots, peaches, or plums in summer, and apples or pears in fall.
