1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
75g/3oz wholemeal flour
100g/4oz golden granulated sugar
75g/3oz butter, melted
1 large egg

Stir in the wholemeal flour and granulated sugar. Mix together the butter, egg and buttermilk and pour over the dry ingredients. Reserve 2 tsp of the juice from the grapefruit pieces in small bowl. Add the grapefruit pieces to the flour mixture with the walnuts. Stir only enough to dampen the flour, the mixture should be lumpy. Spoon the mixture evenly between each muffin case and bake for 15-18 minutes until golden. Remove the muffins to a cooling rack and leave to cool. Blend the reserved grapefruit juice with the icing sugar to make icing. Drizzle over the muffins to decorate.
