JULY 4th FOOD: Red, White & Blue Angel Food Cake Recipe

You can grill more than fruit for dessert. Have you ever grilled cake?

While the grill is hot, toss on slices of pound cake or angel food cake. Serve them with grilled fruit and whipped cream or ice cream.

Here’s an easy red, white & blue dessert for July 4th, courtesy of Grilled Angel Food Cake with Peppered Berries & Vanilla Cream. With a luscious mascarpone topping instead of whipped cream and a touch of heat from black pepper, it’s memorable, festive and just right to celebrate the 235th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Makes 6 servings. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 5 minutes.


  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, coarse ground
  • 6 slices angel food cake (1-1/2-inches thick)

    1. Beat cream, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gently stir in mascarpone cheese. Cover. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    2. Mix remaining 1/3 cup sugar and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Stir in water and vinegar until well blended. Stir in blueberries. Stirring constantly, bring to boil on medium heat and boil 1 minute. Pour into medium bowl to cool slightly. Add raspberries and pepper; toss gently to coat.

    3. Grill angel food cake slices over medium heat 45 to 60 seconds per side or until golden brown grill marks appear. To serve, spoon berry mixture over each slice of cake. Top with a dollop of whipped cream mixture.

    Grill on!
