Grapefruit ginger bread

I have been really lazy to post the recipes which is there in my drafts for ages. I made this one long ago when I had a lone grapefruit and found the recipe in Chef in you. I made very slight changes to the recipe. It tasted a little bitter and I thought , I could have added a cup of sugar and also excluded the zest. But I really loved the walnuts and the taste of ginger in it. On the whole the bread was good and I smeared some jam over it to shield the slight bitter taste. Thanks Dk for the recipe. You can also see a post on how to supreme a grapefruit at Chef in you (http://chefinyou.com/2010/01/how-to-supreme-fruits)
