Grilled Pound Cake with Grilled (yes!) Strawberries


Confession: we watched Date Night (love Tina Fey) and then got sucked into YouTube for far too long, and now it’s closing in on 1am and I don’t have the gumption to upload pictures of our pizza.

But check this out: thickly sliced pound cake (which is more substantial than most cakes and able to withstand the heat of the grill) topped with saucy-sweet warm berries, grilled alongside in a foil packet. You can grill strawberries? Oh yes. There’s still time.

Of course sliced fresh strawberries straight-up would work just fine. But I discovered that if you pile berries onto a square of foil and sprinkle them with a bit of sugar, then fold up the sides and ends of the foil to seal them into a little packet (much like cooking en papillote, or the same way you might do potatoes in foil) and toss them on the hot grill for a few minutes, just until they release their juices. Carefully open the packet and pour out the warm berries and their juices over a piece of grilled pound cake, and top with a scoop of ice cream or blop of whipped cream.

Congratulations Anita, who has herself a new cast iron skillet! (I left it on the doorstep yesterday, between Winter’s and Chuck Hughes. Full tutorial to follow.)

    This looks amazing, I want me some! I’ve been hooked on honey flavoured greek yogurt for the past few weeks which I bet would make a great topping as well.
