Last Nights Dinner (Dessert) 08.03.10

Kev eloquently named this dessert “A Grilled, Rum-Soaked Hot Mess”


So what goes better together than rum, pineapple, melted chocolate, pound cake and whipped cream. Umm the answer is nothing!
When we were over Adam’s house after the swap on Saturday we decided to make some delicious grilled dessert. We came up with this mess of a dish. It may not look like much from the photo, but boy is it tasty. I may have gotten carried away with dripping the chocolate on this one. I wasn’t thinking photo pretty, I was just thinking more chocolate for my belly!! Mmmm

Fresh Pineapple
Spiced Rum
Pound Cake
Whipped Cream
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1. Cut pineapple in the slices, place in bowl and pour bottle of rum over top. Let sit for a while. I dont have a specific time- I think we did it about an hour.
2. Slice pound cake.
3. heat Grill.
4. Place Pound cake and pineapple and the grill and grill till you see fit.
5. Melt chocolate in a double broiler or microwave.
6. Pile it all on a plate, drip chocolate and top with whipped cream.

Dinners will resume next week. I just couldn’t resist this dessert post this week.

  1. This looks SO yummy! Last night I made the Mexican chopped salad recipe that you posted a few weeks back. I LOVE the cilantro/green onion/lime dressing, it was amazing! I’ve always been a huge fan of taco salads, and make them quite regularly, but this dressing took it to a whole new level! Thanks for posting it.

    On another note, I was wondering if you ever considered creating a link on your page that would take you to all the “Last Night’s Dinner” posts? (Or maybe it exists already and I can’t find it?!) I know you (and Kev) are super busy people, but it would be an awesome feature (especially for me, since I scroll through your archives all the time for the recipes.) Just a thought/suggestion maybe for the future! Thanks again for all your awesomeness – cooking, fashion, art, the list goes on, you’re blog is soo inspiring!
