This is perfect for summer!
I think I mentioned in one of my most recent blog posts that I prefer pound cake over most cakes. Simply because it’s a little lighter and it has just a light glaze. Sometimes icing can be a bit much for me. But I love pound cake. It’s the cake of the south, at least that is how I look at it.
So why grill it, right? Pound cake is good on its own. Although this is very true, you can benefit from trying a different technique that will excite your taste buds and grill this cake will. I want you to get out of your comfort zone and try it. If you don’t like it, guess what? You have the rest of the cake to eat normally.
It doesn’t taste burnt although you can tell it taste like it has been grilled. it heightens the flavor a bit and gives a pleasant crispness to the cake that makes it more exciting to eat. I loved it! Pound cake can be a bit boring and dull. Grilling the cake makes it more exciting and enjoyable to eat. I urge you to try it.You may or may not like it, but remember, you have the rest of the cake to eat the normal way :-).
