Grilled Pound Cake with Bourbon Peach Sauce

Things more often than not, don’t go according as planned. Last week when I made the Cherry Smoked Blueberry Buckle With Blueberry Bourbon Sauce I bought too many blue berries. So the plan was simple enough, make the blueberry sauce and serve it over pound cake. Unfortunately when I got home I found out the blueberries had went bad and their next stop would be the trash can. So BACK OUT I went, this time opting for peaches. In short I only bought the pound cake to use up the blueberries and I only bought the peaches to use up the pound cake.

What to expect:

Grilling the pound cake caramelizes the sugars and gives it a nice flavor. The bourbon draws out the flavor of the peaches. Served with ice cream it gives wonderful contrasts of hot and cold, as well as a contrast to the light crunch of the pound cake.

** Note: This recipe can be made without the bourbon. Simply replace the bourbon with water.

A second option is to place diced peaches in a bowl with the sugar only, refrigerate  and let set for several hours stirring occasionally.

Yeild: 4 servings.

What you will need: 


About 1 hour of time.

8 thick slices of pound cake ( I strongly recommend cooking a few more slice of cake than you think you will need. Some will fall apart and most likely you will burn one or two. Experience talking here, don’t ask.)

4 Tbls of butter

2 large fresh peaches

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup bourbon

1 tsp cornstarch

1 pint vanilla ice cream

Begin by setting your grill up for direct grilling.

While the grill comes up to temperature peel and dice the  peaches.

Add to bowl along with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup bourbon.

Mix well, and set aside.



Once the grill is ready, melt the 4 Tbls of butter.



Butter one side of the pound cake and place on grill butter side down.



While it’s cooking butter the side that’s up. Move quickly it won’t take long to cook.

Once you have nice grill marks, CAREFULLY flip and cook the other side.

When done remove from grill and set aside.

Now place the peach mixture in a sauce pan, and begin to cook over the hottest part of the coals.



Bring to a boil stirring constantly.

Once it comes to a boil add 1 tsp cornstarch.

Cook until it becomes a nice, rich, thick, tasty, syrup.

Remove from the grill and let cool slightly.

Now assemble, and enjoy in the cool of the evening with friends, family and loved ones.

As always remember what you cook isn’t nearly as important as who you cook it with.
