Pound Cake and Pineapple Dessert

Making Grilled Caramelized Pineapple Pound Cake is as easy as one, two, three. Let me show you how with the following step-by-step photos:

Thaw, slice, and spread butter on both sides of store-bought pound cake (one slice per person). Heat an indoor grill pan (or outdoor grill) and grill the prepared pound cake slices on both sides until grill marks appear. Remove the pound cake to a platter while grilling the pineapple slices.

Drain canned pineapple rings (one per serving), and dry them on paper towels. Sprinkle each pineapple slice with approximately 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Grill each slice of pineapple on the heated grill pan until grill marks appear. Place one grilled pineapple slice atop of each serving of grilled pound cake. To serve; place a large dollop of whipped cream on each pound cake and pineapple stack, along with a sprig of mint if desired. Enjoy!

Caramelized Pineapple Pound Cake Dessert

The reasons I’ve decided to pair this easy recipe for Grilled Caramelized Pineapple Pound Cake with this “I Got One” whimsical hand-painted bride wine glass is because I guess I have weddings on the brain after attending my nephew’s wedding yesterday in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Also because this easy dessert would be a perfect match for any new bride (or groom) who may feel a little intimidated in the kitchen, (just as I was as a new bride). This recipe is the perfect starter for anyone who wants something they know and trust they’ll be successful with when whipping up, no matter their skill level, and that it’s something that tastes as delicious as it looks. This is my solemn vow!
