This was wonderful. The whipped cream was light and airy with the hint of lemon in it made it very refreshing. My whole family loved it. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

Many of our classic recipes need to be shown again and, even, reviewed. It reminds some of us of what we've forgotten. It introduces "oldies, but goodies" to newer generations. Yes, toasted/grilled pound cake is a classic. And, deservedly, so.

MY REVIEW

The recipe is a 5 star and easier since I got a grill top to use on the burners in bad weather. But stop the backbiting on this site. So childish and unnecessary. Taste of Home should be selective.

Way to go, Sally. Good job outing yourself to be a grinch with no class. I appreciate every recipe that anyone posts on this site, including this one. Obviously I don't prepare or consume every one, but I also don't snipe at a recipe author just to make myself feel superior. BTW Sally, since you claim you've been making this for 10 years, I can't help wondering why you only gave it 2 stars. Have you been serving an icky dessert to friends and family all these years? (Rhetorical question - I think I know the answer.)

This is a delicious dish. Years ago my mother would prepare this , using Marscapone cheese spread on the warm cake and berries or peaches on top.
