Grilled Pound Cake with Blueberry Sauce and Ricotta Cream

Grilled Pound Cake with Blueberry Sauce and Ricotta Cream - AmandasCookin.com

First off let me just say how impressive looking and positively delicious this dessert is. The best part is that’s it’s super easy to make. Slightly crunchy edges on the pound cake are topped with sweet ricotta cream and topped with warm blueberry sauce. Yum!

I made this with both Smucker’s® Blueberry and Strawberry Toppings. My husband prefers strawberry while I’m a blueberry fan. That’s another nice thing about this dessert is each person can have their favorite topping, so no one is left feeling like they have to settle.

My husband liked it so much that he said it tasted like something you would order for dessert at a restaurant. I agree, very impressive and really easy.

You could use homemade pound cake for this, or for convenience sake grab a prepared pound cake from the store. If you buy Entemann’s they are pretty small, so you’ll probably only need half or even a third of the topping and ricotta cream. Homemade poundcake is much larger, so the recipe ingredients are more size appropriate.

The original recipe called for all Ricotta cheese, but I used a combination of cream cheese and Ricotta to give it a smoother texture. I like Ricotta cheese, but I prefer the creamy texture of cream cheese. Mascarpone was actually my first choice, I was going to substitute the entire amount with that, but the grocery store was out when I went. Mixing the cream cheese and the Ricotta made for a really nice combination.

    LOVE this recipe! I’ve seen Giada baking a slice of pound cake once in her show and I thought it was pretty interesting, but your take with this ricotta and jam topping is something else!

    indeed, simple but extremely elegant, a perfect dessert!
