Want a fancy sounding dessert or afternoon snack that is secretly super easy? Then this Grilled Pound Cake with Rhubarb Compote is what you need to wow your friends.
Have you been watching Great British Baking Show? OMG, so good!
I was a bit skeptical about it at first. I mean how could another cooking competition show be that good… it must be the same as all the other cooking shows? Oh was I wrong.
This show is awesome! Heartwarming, drama-free, fun, oddly addicting, and they all have the best accents! Oh and they make some pretty good desserts too!
That is definitely the down side of the show. It makes me hungry for cake and pastries! Looking at drool-worthy desserts in every flavor you could ever imagine every night after dinner is hard. AHH! So as a result, I decided to make a dessert good enough to eat while I watch this show.
Pound cake. An often forgotten classic that is incredible for breakfast, dessert or with an afternoon iced coffee perhaps?
Rhubarb. In season and everywhere right now.
Put the two together and you get Pound Cake with Rhubarb Compote.
You guys, this is a dreamy combination. Lightly sweet buttery pound cake with a gorgeously pink tart rhubarb compote spooned on top. Oh man… this is some sultry stuff. Simple flavors paired together for a lovely summer dessert.
To elevate the oh-la-la feature, grill the pound cake first. That’s right, lightly grill a few slices for 2-3 minutes on each side to get some nice grill marks and then spoon on the compote. WOW!
Eating cake while watching cake baking… can’t complain 🙌 Toddles!
