grilled pound cake with fresh summer berries

Summer may be officially over, but we’re still enjoying the warm weather and long days in Southern California.  To savor the endless California summer, Derrick and I enjoyed a dessert that incorporated three things that are quintessential to summer:  grilling, ice cream and fresh summer berries.  Grilled pound cake with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream and a generous serving of fresh strawberries and blueberries is the perfect no fuss dessert.  It’s so simple and easy to put together for 2 or 20 people.  Lightly grilling the pound cake makes the cake more aromatic and brings out the richness of the cake.  The warm cake is then topped with a scoop of sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream and then covered with beautiful fresh strawberries and blueberries.    It’s light, creamy and decadent. Store bought pound cake and ice cream are the two shortcuts to this easy dessert.  Of course, if you really wanted toyou could  turn on your oven during these hot months to make homemade pound cake.  I’m going to opt out of that one…

The dessert is grilled on The Technique® Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 18″x12″ BBQ pan with DuPont™ Teflon® nonstick coating.  It’s a pan made especially for the grill.  It helps you grill multiple things at the same time without worrying about it falling through the grates.  I think it would be perfect for grilling mushrooms without having to skewer them or aparagus or onions.  The best thing is that the tough Teflon coating is strong so you can use metal utensils on it and once you’re done grilling  you can pop the pan into the dishwasher for easy cleaning.  What I love about it was that pound cake went directly on the grill pan instead of the grill which means that I could rest assure that my dessert wasn’t going to taste like a piece of steak!
