EDR Grilled Angel Food Cake With Melted Berries
7 Min

Low-fat angel food cake is topped with fresh berries that cook down in a delicious maple syrup sauce in this recipe for Grilled Angel Food Cake with Melted Berries, from Chef Steve Petusevsky's "Sizzle & Smoke" cookbook. It's a dessert that's a summertime delight!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups mixed berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon Splenda
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom, ground
  • 12 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 (8-ounce) unfrosted angel food cake, cut into eight, 1-inch thick slices
  • vegetable oil (for spraying grill)

What to Do

  1. Line a medium bowl with a large piece of aluminum foil, pressing the foil into the sides of the bowl well.
  2. Add the berries, Splenda, maple syrup, cardamom, and balsamic vinegar over all.
  3. Wrap the foil up, forming a package, and twist the top so the liquid doesnt escape.
  4. Preheat the grill over medium-high heat and place the berry package on the grill for the direct heat method (see Notes).
  5. Grill for 5-6 minutes, turning and shaking the package occasionally. Spray the cake slices lightly with vegetable oil to prevent sticking and add the cake slices to the grill to mark. Grill gently for 2-3 minutes, place on a serving dish and pour the melted berries over the cake.
  6. If desired, serve with sugar-free whipped cream or low- or no-fat Greek yogurt.
