Need a great dessert for your barbecue? Look no further than our grilled Tutti Frutti Shortcake. It's a marriage made in heaven of pound cake and fruit cocktail, and a grilled dessert your gang will love.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16-ounce) can fruit cocktail, undrained (see Note)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 (16-ounce) pound cake, cut into 1-inch slices
What To Do:
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
     
  2. In a disposable 8-inch square aluminum pan, combine fruit cocktail (with its juice), brown sugar, and cinnamon; mix well and set aside.
     
  3. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water. Place fruit mixture in aluminum pan on grill and heat through, stirring occasionally.
     
  4. When hot, add cornstarch mixture and stir for 5 to 7 minutes, until it starts to bubble and thicken slightly.
     
  5. Place pound cake slices on grill to warm, if desired (about 2 minutes per side). Remove cake to a serving platter and spoon fruit mixture onto cake slices.
     
Note

No fruit cocktail on hand? Go ahead and use a 16-ounce can of peaches or pears instead.
