  • Fruit for grilling. our favorites are peaches, pineapple, oranges, and grapefruit
  • Pound cake. Tastefully Simple has a great Absolutely Almond mix!
  • Balsamic Vinegar try Tastefully Simple's Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
  • Ice cream or whipped cream for the top.
Check out our Kitchen Reference Guide for help with unfamiliar terms.


  • Slice the fruit at least 1/2 an inch thick. (the thicker it is, the better it holds together on the grill)
  • Layer the fruit on a cookie sheet or other flat dish.
  • Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, turning once. Let sit.
  • When the grill is ready... grill the pound cake first, if you like.
  • Put the fruit on the grill on the cooler parts of the grill and grill for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove from heat and serve with the grilled pound cake, ice cream, and a fresh drizzle of balsamic vinegar.


Be aware that some fruits are easier than others to cut with a fork after grilling. We prefer pineapple, peaches, and oranges for the ease of eating.
If you decide to grill the pound cake, be prepared for it to cook quickly!

  1. haha; no Italian…we don’t think…? But there really is just something different and fabulous about food over the grill!

    I’m totally into grilling — for us it’s a way of life. My hubby has been known to take the snow shovel and make a path to the grill so we can enjoy the flavor or burnt meat — just kidding. We do enjoy the grill year round though. Balsamic vinegar and fruit?? Yum!! Do you have some Italian blood in you?
