Grilled Pound Cake with Espresso Chocolate Sauce

Makes: 8 servings
Prep 25 mins Grill 2 mins
Grilled Pound Cake with Espresso Chocolate Sauce
  • 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

1. In a very small bowl, combine boiling water and espresso powder. Set aside.

For chocolate sauce::

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.)

5. Serve grilled cake slices with whipped cream, pistachio nuts, and chocolate sauce. Makes 8 servings.
