Blackberry and Pomelo Cake

Whenever I see an unusual fruit or vegetable, I need to buy it. I need to figure out how to eat it.

Enter the pomelo, the largest citrus fruit.  What can I make with it?  Why is it so big?!

The pomelo tastes like a sweet, mild grapefruit – it has very little or none of the common grapefruit’s bitterness, but the membranes of the segments are bitter and usually discarded. The peel is sometimes used to make marmalade, or candied then dipped in chocolate. The peel of the pomelo is also used in Chinese cooking or candied. In general, citrus peel is often used in southern Chinese cuisine for flavouring, especially in sweet soup desserts. – Wikipedia
