The grilled pound cake is fabulous topped with ginger cream and fresh mango. Use packaged or left-over pound cake for an elegant, but easy dessert. Recipe adapted from National Mango Board.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat cream, sugar and cinnamon with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; stir in crystallized ginger and set aside in the refrigerator until shortcakes are ready to assemble.
  2. Stir together butter and cinnamon sugar; spread lightly over one side of each cake slice. Grill (can do this in a frying pan) over medium heat for a few minutes on each side to lightly brown.
  3. Place half the cake slices on 6 dessert plates, sugar side up. Top with half the whipped cream and half the mango slices. Repeat layers and garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
