Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs

Serves: 8       Total Time: 30 Minutes


Strawberry Shortcake
2 pints of strawberries, washed and cored
1 loaf style pound cake (vanilla)
16 to 20 skewers
Whipped Cream
1 Liter of whipping cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 to 2 tbsp. sugar
1 large glass or metal bowl that's been frozen
electric handheld beater


Step 1
Soak the skewers while you prep the strawberries by washing and coring them.
Step 2
Take the wrapper off the loaf cake and cut it into 2-inch cubes.
Step 3
Preheat the grill to medium-low, about 400 to 450°F.
Step 4
Skewer the berries and loaf cake alternating between the two until you have used up all of the berries and cake.
Step 5
Clean the grids of your grill well before starting to cook, you don't want your dessert to taste like the steak you just cooked.
Step 6
Oil your grids using tongs to hold a paper towel with oil on it.
Step 7
Grill the berry skewers until grill marks form on every side, then serve topped with whipped cream.
Step 8
FOR THE WHIPPED CREAM: Place your glass or metal bowl into the freezer for at least one hour before you're ready to make whipped cream
Step 9
Pour ice cold whipping cream into the frozen bowl on your counter.
Step 10
Add the vanilla and sugar to the whipping cream.
Step 11
Using a handheld beaters, on medium high setting, beat the cream until peaks form.

Now whipping cream is finicky sometimes, so you may want to have a larger bowl with ice water to hold the bowl that you're whipping the cream in. Kind of like a double boiler, but cold. This helps to set the whipping cream faster. Also, it takes like 5 minutes maybe more of constant whipping. Keep calm and whip on!

Another international food holiday. I almost can't keep up! This recipe sure won some hearts when I made it for the office. And I am so going to make it again the first chance I get. What is your favorite food holiday? 

Happy Grilling!
