Grilled Pound Cake A La Mode – Summer Recipe


We love this dessert because it’s so simple to make, but looks so special (and it tastes just as special.) The grilled pound cake serves as the base – its crunchy exterior hides a soft buttery interior, both tastes and textures are equally delicious in combination with the refreshing sweet flavors of the berries and the creamy rich ice cream.

Ingredients (serves 8-10)

  • 1 large loaf pound cake (cut into ¾” slices)
  • 1 16 oz. package strawberries (rinsed and sliced)
  • 1 dry pint blueberries (rinsed)
  • 1 dry pint blackberries (rinsed and sliced in half)
  • confectioners’ sugar (powered sugar)
  • 1 1.5 quart carton French vanilla ice cream


Preheat grill. Rinse and dry berries. Mix together in a bowl and set aside. Put slices of cake on medium heat grill, grill on each side 3-4 minutes per side until cake is heated through and grill marks appear. Remove from grill, top with berries, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and a mini scoop of French vanilla ice cream.

We suggest grilled barbequed chicken with onions and peppers (purchase a family pack of a cut whole chicken which allows for a variety and is usually the most economical) paired with grilled corn on the cob and grilled pound cake and berries.
