1 pound whole strawberries -- hulled
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
High quality, store-bought pound cake, cut into think slices
Vanilla ice cream -- I always prefer Haagen-Daz!
1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
2. Preheat grill pan to medium-low heat.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss strawberries with maple syrup and balsamic. Lay strawberries in a single layer in parchment. Roast in oven for 10-12 minutes.
4. While berries are roasting, lightly butter pound cake and grill until marks appear and it is slightly toasted -- 2-3 minutes per side.
5. Remove berries and cool slightly. Top grilled pound cake with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and roasted strawberries.
