What?! Grilled cake? Uh HUH! Grilled Pound cake ala mode from The Party BluPrints Blog. I’m taking a second now to imagine how the grill crisps up that buttery pound cake…hold on….just another minute…ok, I’m done.
Let’s toast to the beginning of the end of summer. Thank you for sharing Dawn & Elizabeth!
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.
Grilled Pound Cake Ala Mode
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.
