Bananas Suzette Over Grilled Pound Cake
medium ripe, yet firm, bananas
tablespoons orange liqueur
tablespoons orange juice
teaspoon ground nutmeg
10 3/4 ounce package frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into 4 slices
Shredded orange peel (optional)
Ground nutmeg (optional)
- Peel bananas; bias-slice each banana into 8 pieces. Preheat a heavy 8-inch skillet* on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add sugar, liqueur, juice, and butter. Cook about 1 minute or until butter is melted and sugar begins to dissolve. Add the bananas and cook about 4 minutes more or just until bananas are tender, stirring once. Stir in the 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Set skillet to the side of the grill rack. Add pound cake slices to grill rack; grill cake about 1 minute or until golden brown, turning once halfway through cooking.
- To serve, spoon bananas and sauce over pound cake slices. If desired, garnish with shredded orange peel and additional nutmeg. Makes 4 servings.
From the Test Kitchen
The heat from the grill will blacken the outside of the skillet, so use a cast-iron or old skillet.
