My sister cannot get enough of this. Anytime I am grilling you better believe she is asking if I am making this for dessert. I think she would prefer to have it over anything else and it's so super simple to make.

This is a great warm weather dessert. Grilling brings out the sweetness of the pineapple and adds a bit of smokey flavor too. The brown sugar caramelizes on the pineapple and is so yummy. Very simple and delicious! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Grilled Pineapple Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice pineapple into 1 - 1/2 inch slices. Coat each slice with oil and rub it in.
  2. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
  3. Slice pound cake into 2-inch slices. I try to get as many pound cake slices as I have pineapple slices, sometimes there is more of one and less of another... just eyeball it.
  4. Place pineapple slices on hot grill and allow sugar to caramelize on them. When grill marks are formed, flip and cook the other side. This usually takes only one to two minutes - it's a quick process.
  5. Place cake slices on grill and toast and get grill marks on them. Flipping to do both sides. This shouldn't take more than one to two minutes per side.
  6. Serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce (I use ice cream topping, but you could make your own caramel if you have the time).
