Grapefruit Butter Cake

A tired week for me but am lucky to have a break time and have lunch with my sister yesterday.
Today I managed to prepare 2kg of puff pastry for my croissant and baked a Japanese cotton cheese cake (coffee flavor) for my husband's aunty.
Beside all these, I peeled 2kg of potatoes to make the curry puff fillings and made 40 spiral curry puffs for school fund raising on Friday.
I cant continue after that as I still need to cook my dinner.
Plan to continue the rest of the curry puff tomorrow even though i know Thursday is my busiest day of the week.
I still have a ready water roux and a portion of soaked prunes in fridge waiting for me to make a toast and chocolate prune brownie. 
Haha.... I think i must be crazy. All at a time!
Nevermind, I already make myself free this weekend to have  a hair cut and colour dye.
And next week.... relax and going buffet with friends, nasi lemak gathering at friend's house, morning tea with friends, shopping n much more to go just before the school holiday starts.
Looking forward.........!!!!
Tried out this butter cake from the kitchen Snippets on last Sunday when friends come over for dinner.
Since i only had 1 piece that night, so i baked another one on Monday.
hmm.... now i can have more than 1 piece already.
I modified the recipe by adding in the grapefruit juice and orange liqueur.
A fantastic recipe i can recommend.  Really good. Thanks My Kitchen Snippets for sharing this wonderful recipe.
Oh! Before i forgot, I got an award from Veronica's Kitchen last 2 weeks.  So long dint got award already. Feel so happy and motivated. Thanks Veronica. With the Cherry on Top Award, I'm giving it to the following bloggers. Hope u'll love it as what i did.

  •  175g butter, 4eggs(separate the yolk and white), 180g fine sugar, 165g self rising flour, 1/4tsp salt, 25ml grapefruits juice, 1tbsp orange liqueur
  1. Line and greased a 7”  baking pan. Pre-heat the oven 180C.
  2. Sieve flour together with salt and set aside.
  3. Beat butter and half of the sugar until light and fluffy. Add in yolk one at a time. Beat well after adding each one. Then add in juice and mix well.
  4. Fold in the flour in 3 batches. Mix well and set it aside. (I used slow speed to mix the flour in)
  5. In another clean bowl, whisk egg white with the balance of sugar on high speed until soft peaks.
  6. Fold in the egg whites into the butter mixture until well blended. Do not over-do it or the egg whites will deflate.
  7. Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 45mins or until a skewer comes out clean when tested.
