Grilled Pound Cake with Espresso Chocolate Sauce
Ingredients
2
tablespoons boiling water
1
tablespoon instant espresso coffee powder
3/4
cup whipping cream
1
tablespoon light-color corn syrup
8
ounces special dark baking chocolate or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped (about 1-1/3 cups)
1
16 ounce loaf prepared or frozen pound cake*, thawed
1/4
cup orange juice or 2 tablespoons orange juice with 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
1
cup whipping cream, whipped, or 2 cups frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed
1/2
cup pistachio nuts, chopped
Directions
  1. In a very small bowl, combine boiling water and espresso powder. Set aside.
  2. For chocolate sauce:
  3. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the 3/4 cup whipping cream and the corn syrup. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in espresso mixture. Add chocolate all at once. Let mixture stand, covered, for 4 minutes. Whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Cut pound cake into eight 3/4-inch-thick slices.* Poke each slice several times with the tines of a fork. Drizzle orange juice evenly over cake slices.
  5. For a charcoal grill, place cake slices on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 2 to 4 minutes or until toasted and heated through, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place cake slices on grill rack over heat. Grill, uncovered, as above.)
  6. Serve grilled cake slices with whipped cream, pistachio nuts, and chocolate sauce. Makes 8 servings.
