Grilled Pound Cake and Pineapple Towers

If you want to make a dessert that looks fancy but ultimately requires very minimal effort, this is for you. It comes together in just over 10 minutes, and it’s so effortless you could probably make it blindfolded. Though simple, it packs a flavorful punch of tropical island paradise dreams with a delicious combination of pineapple and coconut flavors that is reminiscent of apiña colada. It’s perfect for a summer cookout. —Caroline Schliep

Method

  • Step 1

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to MAX, and set the time to 8 minutes. Press the dial to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the pound cake slices on the grill. Leave the hood open and cook for 4 minutes, flipping halfway through using a rubber-coated spatula. When cooking is complete, remove the pound cake from the grill and set aside.

  • Step 3

    Place the pineapple rings on the grill. Leave the hood open and cook for 4 minutes, flipping halfway through using silicone-tipped tongs. When cooking is complete, remove the pineapple from the grill and set aside.

  • Step 4

    To assemble the towers, place a slice of pound cake on a plate and top with sliced pineapple, then another slice of pound cake. Finish with a scoop of the ice cream and top with the coconut flakes.
