Grilling is not just for meats and vegetables any more. While you have the grilled heated up, use it to make dessert, too.

This recipe for “French toast” is really not much more than grilled pound cake, and it works just fine with store-bought cake. Look for quality pound cake in the freezer section and let it thaw to room temperature before proceeding with the recipe.
