Try my Buttermilk Pound Cake with Balsamic Strawberries for your next BBQ. After you bake the pound cake, just cool then wrap and freeze for 30 minutes, slice, grill, and enjoy.

I love using my KitchenAid for this recipe! All of the ingredients in one mixer.

This recipe fits a 10-inch Bundt pan or you can use a standard loaf pan but there will be extra for a mini-loaf as well.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
