Grilling fruit in season is such an incredible way to bring out the nuance of flavors, and this grilled strawberry shortcake is no exception!
  • 1 1/2 cups Whipping cream
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsps Powdered sugar
  • 1 lb Strawberries
  • 2 tbsps Honey
  • 12 ozs Angel food cake
  • 6 Skewers
  • Fresh basil or mint leaves for garnish

Pour the whipping cream into a medium bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.

Use the stand mixer or egg beater at medium speed to whip the cream for 2-3 minutes. Add the lemon zest and the powdered sugar.

Whip until soft peaks form, 4-6 minutes more. Refrigerate until serving.


Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Cut angel food cake into 6 wedges.

Thread 4 strawberries onto each skewer.

Drizzle each skewer of strawberries with 1 teaspoon of honey. Use a brush or fingers to spread it around and coat berries.

Transfer berry skewers and angel food cake to the grill. Grill on one side until grill marks appear, 1-2 minutes. Flip and grill until grill marks appear on the other side, 1-2 minutes more. Remove from grill.


Serve each slice of angel food cake with a skewer of grilled strawberries and about ½ cup of whipped cream.

Garnish with basil or mint leaves, if desired.
