Easy Summer Dessert: Grilled Pound Cake, Ice Cream, Chocolate, Pineapple

From Denny:  This is too easy.  You can grill this entire dessert indoors on a grill pan.  All you do is grill the fresh pineapple until it caramelizes nicely and gets those all important status grill marks.

Brush both sides of the prepared pound cake with butter.  We use clarified butter at our house because it helps your heart by skimming off the artery clogging milk solids and the resulting clear golden oil can also can be used at a higher heat.

Grill the buttered pound cake.  Top with vanilla ice cream and top with your favorite yummy chocolate sauce.  Summer is so easy with winning easy recipes like this classic!
