Grilled Strawberry Shortcake
Store bought (or homemade) pound cake
1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ cups cold heavy whipping cream
½ cup powdered sugar
½ tsp. vanilla extract
Slice the pound cake into 8-10 even slices. In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries and granulated sugar together and place on a small baking sheet or grill-proof bowl.
In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, whip the cold heavy cream for 2 minutes before adding in the powdered sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form, set aside.
Heat clean grill to medium heat. Grill the pound cake slices until golden brown grill marks appear, then flip and repeat on other side. While the second side is grilling place the pan of strawberries on the grill to warm through.
Serve the grilled pound cake slices with warm strawberries and fresh whipped cream.
