Pound Cake Strawberry Grilled Cheese

Pound cake and strawberry grilled cheese is one of the dessert that is easily made and most welcome in our family. With just a few ready ingredients, it is easy to make. This is quite pleasing too. Crispy pound cake with yummy cream cheese and strawberries.....this simple twist takes the plain pound cake to a different dimension. Also, serving the cake as such or with fruits may be boring and this version is fun to have now and then.

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese month? Who doesn't love grilled cheese. They are the perfect comfort food and also a quick meal to put through which brings a smile in everyone's face. Grilled cheese need not be savory. They can be made for desserts too and many versions. This is one of my way to make a dessert sandwich. I have shared two methods - stovetop and panini press. Both are fun and delicious. It is hard to say enough as it would so addictive.
