Grilling Angel Food Cake allows the sugar in the cake to caramelize giving this dessert a delicious flavour boost. We love to entertain with this dessert as it’s as how stopper. No on really believes you can grill angel food cake! Most of the time we buy our angel food food cake from the store to save time.
It’s fun to set up a grilled angel food cake bar. We like to put out several toppings….tonight it was chocolate sauce, blueberry sauce, strawberry sauce, vanilla ice cream, fresh cut up strawberries and peaches and fresh whipping cream. Then everyone helps themselves to whatever toppings they wish. My boy even ran to the pantry to get some sprinkles for his!
As the sugars in the angel food cake brown up quickly do not leave the grill when you are barbecuing these delicate pieces of cake. Talking from experience they can quite quickly turn black!
Cut up some fruit or scoop on some ice cream. Topping options are endless!
- 1 prepared Angel Food Cake
- It helps if the Angel Food Cake is a day or two old. I've found cutting it when it's fresh out of the oven or home from the store is challenging as it's too soft.
- Cut your cake into several one inch pieces. Place on grill over medium high heat and stay there watching and flipping cake pieces until lightly browned.
- Serve with your favourite topping.
