Out Of The Dessert Box Grilling

Publish date:
grilled pound cake and plum salsa

Grilled desserts are real showstoppers. The high heat oF the grill greatly amplifies the sweetness of summer fruits. In this recipe, grilled plums make a unique dessert salsa. If the jalapenos are too adventurous for you, use only one, or leave them out entirely– I find that it really punches up the flavor of the salsa. Any stone fruit can be substituted for the plums (apricots, peaches, nectarines).

This recipe uses the grill for 2 components: the plums for the salsa, and the pound cake. A medium-high grill is needed both times. If you make the salsa a day or two in advance, the flavor will only intensify.  To assemble the dessert:

Plate the warm pound cake slices. Cover with a gener- ous spoon of the salsa and a dollop of whipped topping. Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
