Mini Grilled Peach Layer Cakes (Only 4 Ingredients!)

Now that our Indian summer is (finally) here, we’re making up for lost time by BBQing as many times as we can. After all, we’ve got a lot of grilling and beer drinking to make up for! Inspired by the ease of BBQ culture, we began sticking everything we can on the grill. And we mean everything. Including CAKE. Stemming out of the desire to easily create a dessert without having to turn on the oven, we created a beautiful and delicious layer cake– no oven required, with only 4 ingredients. Intrigued? Then you’ll love these simple and stunning grilled peach layer cakes!


Ingredients:
-3 medium peaches

-1 Sara Lee pound cake, thawed

-2 tbsp sugar

-cinnamon for sprinkling

-optional: whipped cream, ice cream, basil

Start off by creating peach rings. Use your knife to slowly cut around the peach “hamburger” style. Use your fingers to gently detach the peach from the seed. Cut all the peaches, except leave half of one. Then, horizontally slice your pound cake into 3 layers, or even 6 layers.

Then, use your largest peach ring as a template and trace out a circle from your pound cake. Repeat until you have no more pound cake. You can also use a similarly sized cookie cutter if you don’t want to trace out manually. On a BBQ grill, or a grill pan, gently grill your cake on low to medium heat until those grill marks appear, about 2 minutes each side. Repeat with the peach rings, which will take longer (about 5 minutes per side).

Then, alternately layer your cake and peach rings, sprinkling cinnamon on top of the peach rings.

Finally, create the peach compote by chopping up your remaining half peach. In a small saucepan, add in the chopped peaches and sugar and heat until the sugar is caramelized, about 5 minutes. Finish by topping the cakes with the peach compote. Now, add optional toppings such as whipped cream, ice cream, or shredded basil.
