Grilled Pineapple Angel Food Cake with a roasted marshmallow chaser
An Erin Allport Original! :)
OK, when talking about how awesome grilled pineapple is, someone suggested that I try grilling it and adding cinnamon and sugar. That sounded amazing, so I had to try it!
I decided to also grill some angel food cake, add some vanilla ice cream (frozen yogurt this time), whipped cream, and add a side of roasted marshmallows. Not sure how I formed this idea in my head, but it sounded awesome...and let's just say, I could eat this EVERY day, and never tire of it! It was SO good!!!!
Chris doesn't like marshmallow (I Know, crazy, huh?!) And pineapple isn't his most favorite thing, but he enjoyed it...but I think the marshmallows definitely put this over the top! It's just awesome with roasted marshmallows! :)
Sorry that it's not allergy free at all (eggs, milk, wheat...it's got it all) :(
Grilled Pineapple Angel Food Cake with a Roasted Marshmallow Chaser
Angel food cake slices (one for each serving)
Fresh Pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into bite size chunks
Cinnamon & Sugar
Vanilla ice cream
Marshmallows (2 large for each serving)
1. Either in grill pan or on skewers, grill pineapple for about 5-10 minutes over medium flame. Once it's fully heated through and starting to get grill marks, remove from heat and add cinnamon and sugar, to taste.
2. While grilling pineapple, roast marshmallows, removing from skewer and putting aside on a plate (I let mine catch fire to quickly char the outside, while not making them super gooey on the inside, so they'd keep their form).
3. Grill slices of angel food cake over high heat, for about 30 seconds or so each side, until it has nice grill marks, but isn't burned!
4. To serve, put angel food cake slice on plate, top with grilled pineapple, whipped cream, a scoop if ice cream, and 2 roasted marshmallows!
The only thing I might try and add to this sometime is some chocolate drizzled on top :) That might be great too!
