University Book Store's Birthday Soiree 110/110 on 01/10/10
Now for the Grilled Birthday Cake recipe that appears in 110/110:
One pound cake, slightly aged
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup heavy cream
Cut thick slices of pound cake.
Make chocolate ganache: Heat cream on low heat. Stir in chocolate until fully melted. Keep warm.
Fire up grill on medium high. Once pre-heated, swipe grill grate with oiled rag. Place pound cake slices on direct heat for 10 seconds, or until grill marks form. Flip and repeat.
Serve warm. Drizzle chocolate ganache and serve with fresh cut strawberries or fruit in season. Insert candle and make a wish.
Happy 110th birthday, University Book Store!
