Originally titled "Summertime Strawberry Shortcake", this recipe appeared in the first issue of Weber Grill-Out Times newsletter, August 1995.
  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 1 pound cake
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter
  • Vanilla ice cream
Charcoal: Indirect
Gas: Indirect/Medium Heat

Wash and hull the strawberries, slice and sweeten to taste with sugar. Set aside while grilling the pound cake.

Cut pound cake into slices 3/4 inch thick and brush both sides with melted butter. Place cake slices in the center of the cooking grate. Grill until lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes per side, turning once halfway through grilling time. Place on serving plates and spoon strawberries over top. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Hi Chris, thank you for posting. I love seeing these old recipes. Feels strange referring to 35 years as "old" (wasn't it just last week? lol)
