  1. Set the pound cake out to defrost
  2. Pre-heat the grill and place your griddle or pizza stone on the grill top to heat.

  6. Mix 1/3 cup of mascarpone with 2 tablespoons of lemon curd

Grilling the Pound Cake

  1. Place the buttered pound cake slices on your griddle or pizza stone
  2. Once the slices are browned on the bottom flip over and brown the other side.
  3. Remove cooked slices to a plate

Making the Sandwiches

  1. Spread one side of the pound cake slice with the lemon and mascarpone cheese
  2. Spread another pound cake slice with strawberry jam
  3. Lay the sliced strawberries on top of the mascarpone slice then cover with the strawberry jam slice.
  4. These are little sandwiches but it looks nice to cut them on the diagonal for serving.
  5. These sandwiches can be plastic wrapped and stored in the refrigerator for several days.
