Default Grilled Pound Cake with Tequila-Soaked Pineapple

Grilled Pound Cake with Tequila-Soaked Pineapple
Recipe courtesy of Marcela Valladolid

Ingredients

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup tequila reposado
16 fresh pineapple rings (1/3 inch thick)
1 cup heavy cream
3 to 4 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices store-bought or homemade pound cake (3/4 inch thick)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint plus 8 sprigs, for garnish

Directions

Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat, or prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill.

In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, tequila and 1/4 cup water. Set the pan on the grill (or a side burner on medium-high heat) and cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let stand until cool.

Put the pineapple slices in a baking dish and pour the cooled syrup over them, tossing gently to coat. Let stand at least 5 minutes and up to 30 minutes.

Whip the heavy cream in a bowl to the soft-peak stage. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Spread the butter on both sides of each pound cake slice and grill, turning once, until light golden, about 1 minute per side. Drain the pineapple, reserving the syrup, and grill, turning once, until grill marks appear, about 1 minute per side.

To assemble, place each pound cake slice on a dessert plate and top with 2 pineapple rings. Drizzle a little of the tequila syrup over each plate, top with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with a mint sprig and some chopped mint.

Default Re: Grilled Pound Cake with Tequila-Soaked Pineapple

I love grilled pineapple! Not sure about soaking it with tequila, but what the heck - worth a try!

I just sprinkle some red chile powder of some sort on it (not "chili powder", although that might be good, too!) and it's magnificent!
