Grapefruit-Ginger Tea Bread

1/4 cup pecans, chopped (i used walnut)
2 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 large eggs (I replaced with with an extra quarter cup of yogurt and used most of the juice from the supremed grapefruits to compensate for the moisture loss)
6 oz. nonfat vanilla yogurt (i used Farm Soy Yogurt)
1/4 cup milk (i used Unsweetened original almond)
3 tbsp. canola oil
2 grapefruit, surpremed, segments coarsely chopped, all juice reserved with 2T set aside separately. Do not be afraid of how much juice is left over. If You need help with how to supreme a grapefruit, please ask as this is key for this recipe.
1 tbsp. grapefruit zest
1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
2T grapefruit juice

1. Preheat the oven @ 350 and spray a 9X5 loaf pan with cooking spray.

2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in large bowl. Set aside.

3. Whisk together Soy yogurt, almond milk, and canola oil in a medium-small bowl Add some of your reserved juice then stir some more. Stir in grapefruit segments, remaining grapefruit juice (except the amount for glaze) and grapefruit zest. Make sure everything is mixed together well.

4. Fold the wet mixture into the flour mixture until just moistened and no lumps remain. Fold in crystallized ginger and chopped nuts. Transfer to prepared loaf pan, and bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until deep brown around the edges, and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. With my addition of more yogurt, i had to bake this for about 30 minutes longer than the instructions said. Just WATCH your bread. Cool for 1 hour on wire rack; remove from pan, and cool completely.

5. To make Glaze: Whisk together confectioners' sugar and 1 and 1/2 tbsp. grapefruit juice in small bowl. Stir in additional 1/2 T. juice to acheive thick, but pourable, consistency. I made mine MUCH thinner than the recipe suggests and i think it was more delicious that way. Place foil beneath wire rack to catch drips. Turn loaf upside down so flat side is up, and drizzle Glaze over loaf. Allow Glaze to set before slicing.
