■ 2 Florida oranges, 1 zested and 1 sliced thin
■ 2 Florida grapefruit, 1 zested and 1 sliced thin
■ 4 Florida Key limes, 2 zested and 2 sliced thin
■ 2 ½ cups Florida sugar
■ 1 cup plain (whole fat) Greek yogurt
■ 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
■ 6 eggs, room temperature
■ 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
■ 3 cups all-purpose flour
■ ½ teaspoon baking soda
■ Pinch of sea salt
■ Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
■ Zest 1 orange, 1 grapefruit and 2 Key limes into a small bowl and set aside.
■ Slice the other half of the citrus into thin rounds and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light, fluffy, and pale yellow in color.
■ Add vanilla and eggs one at a time, blending thoroughly after each egg.
■ In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the yogurt.
■ Mix until combined, being careful not to over-work the batter. Gently fold in the citrus zest.
■ Pour into a well-oiled bundt pan or two loaf pans.
■ Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes. Using a plate or cake stand, place the sliced citrus around the outer edges, overlapping as you go.
■ Gently unmold the cake and place it on top of the sliced citrus. Serve warm or at room temperature.
