Grilled Pound Cake A La Mode – Summer Recipe

poundcake

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

Instructions

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.
