Whimsically shaped like a derby hat, the original Brown Derby was an instant hit when it opened in 1926. A second location at Hollywood and Vine, though not hat-shaped, was located close enough to the movie studios and opened late enough at night that it became a hangout for many Hollywood movie stars. The Grapefruit Cake was their signature dessert.
The Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake has two layers of cake topped with a cream cheese frosting, slices of fresh grapefruit, and bits of candied grapefruit.
