Recipe for Today: Grilled Pound Cake with Warm Amaretto Bananas

Prepare yields 4 servings

4 tsp. butter, divided
2 large bananas, cut into 1/4 in slices
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. amaretto
1 tsp. lemon juice
4 slices pound cake (about 1 in. thick)
Sweetened whipped cream and toasted sliced almonds, optional

1. Melt 2 tsp. butter; drizzle over a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 10 in. square).  Place bananas on foil; top with brown sugar, amaretto and lemon juice.  Dot with remaining butter. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.

2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until heated through.  Grill pound cake for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.  Open foil packet carefully, allowing steam to escape.  Spoon bananas over pound cake; top with whipped cream and almonds if desired.
