Units Scale


  1. Preheat your grill to a medium heat (about 350°F/177°C).
  2. Grill the pound cake slices to the desired toasty-ness.* Flip the slices so that they have grill marks on both sides.
  3. Top each grilled pound cake slice with sliced strawberries and a generous dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!


*NOTE: The time needed for grilling will vary by type of grill and temperature. I used a gas grill at a temperature between 350°F to 400°F and grilled the pound cake slices for about a minute and a half on each side. The goal is to add nice grill marks and a bit of toasted texture to the cake slices, so be careful not to overdo it.
