  • Set the pound cake out to defrost if you have a frozen cake.
  • Pre-heat the grill and place your griddle or pizza stone on the grill top to heat. If using the stovetop, place your skillet the stove to preheat
  • Cut the pound cake into ½" slices - usually, you get 12 slices
  • Butter both sides of the pound cake slices.
  • Rinse and pat dry the strawberries. Slice enough berries to cover the sandwiches.
  • Mix ⅓ cup of mascarpone with 2 tablespoons of lemon curd

Grilling the Pound Cake

  • Place the buttered pound cake slices on your griddle or pizza stone on the grill, or in a skillet on your stove.
  • Once the slices are browned on the bottom flip over and brown the other side.
  • Remove cooked slices to a plate

Making the Sandwiches

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


You do have the option of grilling the sandwiches on the grill, I use a gas grill or you can grill them inside on the stovetop.
These sandwiches keep well for several days, just wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
