Grilled Cake with Fruit Recipe

grilled cake with fruit

his recipe was shared with me one year when we attended a neighborhood party. The theme was “What’s in Your Grill”…the sauce was served on the side.

We have since made this for our own get-togethers and it often shows up when we camp (I make the fruit sauce ahead of time).

Or skip the sauce and serve with fresh fruit and a dollop of whipped cream.

Taste and add the remaining sugar if the mixture is tart.

In a small bowl, stir 1 tablespoon of water into the cornstarch, then stir the mixture into the berry sauce and continue cooking, uncovered, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Thread the pound cake cubes onto water-soaked skewers.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-low.

Brush the pound cake cubes with the melted butter.
