This is a recipe I found online. It looks yummy but to be honest I haven't tried it yet. We grill out year round so I will be trying it soon. I love toasted pound cake and this takes it a step up.

How to Make Cherry Ambrosia

Step-by-Step

  2. In a very large bowl, combine cherries, bananas, coconut and orange juice and toss to coat. Add cake cubes and toss just until coated. Add a few more tablespoons orange juice to further moisten the cake if desired.
