Grilled Pound Cake with Cherry Compote Recipe

5.0

Grilling pound cake results in a thin toasty outer layer on the outside while leaving a soft warm cake on the inside. Making the cherry compote is simple as well. Top each slice of grilled cake with cherry sauce and a dollop of pre-made whipped cream and you’re all set to enjoy a fancy looking dessert without the fuss. Enjoy!
