Wake and Bake: Strawberry Pound Cake

I'm not Miss Manners but there are some social graces that I hate to see fall out of fashion. Door holding is one, RSVPing another.

Grilled Pound Cake

Simply butter slices of pound cake before putting them on either an outdoor or indoor stovetop grill, and let them get a little char. The nice part about this dessert is that it uses already-baked pound cake, so you can't under-bake it. The grilled toastiness of the cake makes it the perfect canvas for any number of toppings: I really enjoy ice cream and a seasonal fruit compote. Just be sure to prepare this before grilling meats, because you don't want to impart a burger flavor to your dessert! More
