Bananas Suzette Over Grilled Pound Cake

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 10 mins Grill 6 mins
Bananas Suzette Over Grilled Pound Cake
  • 2  medium  ripe, yet firm, bananas
  • 3  tablespoons  sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  orange liqueur
  • 2  tablespoons  orange juice
  • 1  tablespoon  butter
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 10 3/4 ounce package  frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into 4 slices
  •  Shredded orange peel (optional)
  •  Ground nutmeg (optional)

1. 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.

2. 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*Note:
  • The heat from the grill will blacken the outside of the skillet, so use a cast-iron or old skillet.
