I make this dessert a few times a year and the entire family loves it — it’s so easy and perfect when entertaining guests!
Grilled Pound Cake with Berries and Whipped Cream
12 fresh strawberries, sliced
48 fresh blueberries
3 tablespoons sugar
½ cup water
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 store bought pound cake
8 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
In a medium bowl add the strawberries, blueberries, sugar and water. Stir and chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
In a chilled mixing bowl, add the heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla and whip until creamy and fluffy.
Heat a grill pan until hot. Slice the pound cake into 8 (1/2-inch) slices and butter each slice and grill on each side for 1-2 minutes until lightly golden brown.
To serve: Place one slice pound cake on serving plate, top with whipped cream and berry mixture then top with another slice of pound cake and more berries and whipped cream.
