Grilled Pound Cake with Brandied Red Plums
When plums are at their juiciest best, they’re great in a quick dessert. If you don’t already have the grill going, just broil or toast the pound cake until golden.

Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream
One of life’s simple yet oh-so-satisfying pleasures: grilled stone fruit served alongside a scoop of ice cream. And with only a couple ingredients to season the peaches, you’ve got a satisfyingly easy summer dessert.

Grill-Baked Apple Crisp
A crisp that doesn’t bake in the oven, but rather in the grill! For a hint of smokiness, you can cook it over gas; for a more distinctly outdoorsy flavor, use charcoal.

Roasted Pineapple Shortcakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream
This simple dessert cooks in the oven, but you could make it on the grill (our preference)—cook the pineapple until grill marks appear and lightly toast the angel food cake. Whichever way you go with this dessert, the cinnamon whipped cream is delicious, and a scoop of ice cream wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
