Sur La Table Cooking Class: Part 2

For part two of our Sur La Table cooking class, we made a dessert of citrus, poppy-seed pound cake with grilled bananas. My dad and I are not a fan of citrus in our desserts - but I really couldn't taste it in this pound cake, especially once it was topped with the bananas.
 

As the pound cake was baking, we cut up bananas, and topped them with the following: amaretto, brown sugar, butter, and lemon juice.

This was wrapped tightly into the foil and thrown onto the grill! Once the cake was done baking, they were cut into slices and also briefly thrown onto the grill!

Top the pound cake with the grilled bananas...and oh my heaven!! This was incredible!!

What I loved about this dessert was that it wasn't too sweet or heavy. I will definitely be making this again and again...maybe even this weekend!

If you live near a Sur La Table store that also offers cooking class, I highly recommend these classes. They are entertaining, informative, fun and oh so yummy!

  3. You can grill almost any fruit. Bananas, apples and peaches are particularly wonderful grilled. I concur, this was a really spectacular dessert!
