Grilled pound cake with berries

grilled berries

While it is still a little chilly here in Ohio, we’ve still been eating a lot of food from the grill!

Recently, Sam’s Club invited me to join their “Will it Grill?” challenge! I decided that some delicious fruit would be fantastic on the grill.

I found this recipe for Mixed Berry Hobo Packs with Grilled Pound Cake on FoodandWine.com recently, and I’ve been dying to try it. I mean, berries and pound cake — grilled? With a couple big scoops of vanilla ice cream? Yes. Oh, yes.

I was able to pick up all of my fresh fruit, and other grilling goodies at my local Sam’s Club. I buy fruit at Sam’s Club a lot, it always seems super fresh.

It looks like the pound cake is a little over-grilled in this photo, but we found that it actually tasted better when it was really toasty. The extra crisp in the bowl made the dessert delicious.

grilled pineapple

I also had a fresh pineapple on hand, and decided to coat it with a little honey and lemon juice and grill that too. My son loved the grilled pineapple, and we plan to try this again at our next cookout.

grilled berries

The grilled berries, of course, were enclosed within a foil packet. They only need to be on the grill for a few minutes, you’ll know they are done when they start to sizzle!

Have you ever grilled anything unusual? I’d love to hear about some of the fantastic (and unique) things you grill, and while you’re here, you can enter to win this great charcoal grill! Good luck, and happy grilling!

    We’ve already grilled a couple of times this year. Steak and veggie kabobs are always a favorite in our house.

    I love grilling up eggplant every summer with a little drizzle of EVOO & balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of sea salt, yummy!
