Grilled Pound Cake with Strawberry Basil Cream Cheese

The toasty flavor of lightly grilled pound cake is great with summer berries. Basil-kissed strawberry cream cheese is a delightful change.

Ingredients

  • Store-bought, all butter pound cake
  • 1/4 Pound cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Cup fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon basil leaves

Directions

Combine the cream cheese, strawberries, honey, and basil in a small food processor. Process until blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Light a grill to medium heat, about 350 degrees. Spray the grill grates generously with cooking spray.  Grill pound cake for 1 to 2 minutes until lightly toasted and charred. Serve with fresh strawberries and cream cheese.

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.
