#45: Who knew you could grill angel food cake?

14 Feb

Today you get a delicious recipe that I’m SUPER thankful for. It’s both delicious and sort of low-cal, as desserts go anyway. I found it on Eat This, Not That and made a few alterations. I made it last night for Sunday dinner and the fam was super pleased.

Ingredients:

  • 1 angel food cake
  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp agave nectar
  • Pinch fresh ground black pepper (optional)
  • Fresh whipped cream

Directions:

Mix together balsamic, agave nectar and pepper. I used Sepay Groves blackberry ginger balsamic and Xagave brand nectar. Feel free to use less agave if you want to cut sweetness and calories. I also omitted the pepper due to the unadventurous inhibitions of my family. Pour mixture over sliced strawberries and marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Slice angel food cake into wedges. Spray non-stick griddle with Pam and pre-heat to 300 degrees. Grill cake wedges on each side until caramelized and toasted.  Top generously with fresh whipped cream and strawberries.
