    I made this simple dessert for a family get together. Everyone raved about it which makes it a keeper and a new family favourite.

    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.

    The recipe is a 5 star and easier since I got a grill top to use on the burners in bad weather.

    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.
