So even though I never dated Kevin and he is now a member of our bishopric, I decided to name it after him because he gave me such a hard time about it. And I recently made this for Eric's "Ultimate Feast" birthday dinner (That is another post) and it reminded me how yummy this is so I thought it was time to share it with the world.
"Hey Kevin- This is how you win a YM/YW iron chef" grilled pound cake with peaches and caramel sauce
sliced pound cake
halved and pitted fresh peaches
caramel sauce- I made this one for the award winning recipe but you could use store bought or even go get some from Leatherby's- yum-me!
whipped cream- again I made fresh but you can use the kind in a squirt can or dare I suggest it, use at your own risk- whipped topping
Spread melted butter on both sides of the pound cake and then sprinkle with cinnamon/ sugar mixture. Spray a heated to medium grill with cooking spray- note: make sure your grill has been scrapped of any savory remnants before you grill the cake and peaches or else your dessert will taste like fish or chicken or beef and that for sure won't win you any contests. Then grill both the pound cake and the peaches for a few minutes on each side- so the pound cake gets grill marks and the peaches are soft and sugary but not burnt and mushy. Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with caramel and top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
Here are some pictures from our YM/YW iron chef were this recipe was born!
