Grilled pound cake is unexpected for dessert, but it makes a wonderful ending to a summer evening cookout. Add your favorite fruits!

Grilled pound cake is something you really need to add to your summer dining lineup.

My favorite TV shows are always the ones that are quirky and a bit misunderstood – a little like myself. So it’s no wonder that one of my favorites is Arrested Development. It’s been years since this show was mistreated by FOX and taken off the air, but I still frequently quote it. I know I’ve found some good friends if they can quote along with me.

We still watch the show a lot thanks to DVDs and Netflix, so I was thrilled when it was confirmed that the long-rumored fourth season was actually happening, and it would be all released at once. Good thing May 26 is a Sunday, because I know I wouldn’t be able to get any regular work done with new episodes hanging over my head.

And what’s a show marathon without some excellent snacks?

Grilled pound cake is something you really need to add to your summer dining lineup. Adding more butter to butter cake? Heck, yes! You can also grill the fruit by using foil packets instead of a baking dish in the oven. But be aware – when I roasted the bananas and cherries, the bananas turned an unattractive color. Let’s face it – bananas just aren’t pretty, especially compared to cherries. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t tasty.

Grilled Pound Cake - In honor of the new season of Arrested Development, enjoy this Afternoon Delight dessert, a grilled pound cake.

In honor of awkward family relationships everywhere, enjoy this dessert with a loved one.

    1. @Erin, it’s an episode where both Michael/Maeby and George Michael/Lindsay perform karaoke to the song “Afternoon Delight” without knowing what it’s about. Suffice to say: not the kind of song to sing with your niece/nephew 😉

  1. I’m 5 episodes into the new season so far! Loving seeing so many regulars back….like Bob Loblaw, ha!

  2. I’m definitely intrigued by the grilled poundcake idea. I’ve always bought poundcake from Costco because you get 3 loaves, but I’ve never thought about making it.
