TIP OF THE DAY: Grilled Pound Cake ~ Put Dessert On The Barbie

If you’re firing up the grill for Memorial Day Weekend, grill your dessert as well. It’s an easy crowd pleaser.

If you’re invited elsewhere and want to bring something, offer to bring the ingredients for this dessert: the cake, ice cream and the pre-sliced pineapple.

The cake can be baked up to two days in advance. The recipe, from Tastefully Simple, makes 9 servings.



  • Pound cake: bought, baked from scratch or baked from mix, such as Tastefully Simple’s Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix
  • 1 cup water (for Tastefully Simple cake mix)

  • 3/4 cup butter (1-1/2 sticks), melted (for Tastefully Simple cake mix)
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cut into rings
  • Caramel ice cream (if you can’t find caramel, substitute vanilla)
  • Optional garnish: a drizzle of caramel sauce, a berry, a mint leaf

    1. If baking the cake, prepare recipe as directed. Cool and wrap tightly in plastic until ready to slice and grill.

    2. Grill pineapple rings on each side until heated through; grill pound cake slices until lightly browned on each side.

    3. Assemble by topping cake slices first with pineapple, then with ice cream. Garnish as desired and serve immediately.
