Sparkling Grilled Mango Colada Dessert Panzanella

From Leah Lyon, Ada, OK, 2nd Place winner in our 2010 Summer Grilling Recipe Contest.

Prep Time: 15-20 min
Grill Time: 10 min

  • 1 10-12 ounce pound cake (if frozen, thaw first)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 mangoes, seed removed, peeled and cut into 1 inch wide strips
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves, lightly torn, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup Fischer & Wieser Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup sparkling wine or champagne (may substitute sparkling water)
  • 3 cups sweetened whipped cream

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Slice the cake into 1/2 inch slices and brush lightly with butter. Place the cake slices and mango on a clean, hot grill and grill until cake is golden-hash marked and mangoes are carmelized. Transfer to a cutting board and cool, then cut into 1 inch pieces. In a large bowl, combine the grilled cake and mango with the basil. Mix the Fischer & Wieser Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce, coconut cream, and sparkling wine (water). Drizzle over cake/mango mixture while tossing gently. Divide among 8 dessert dishes and top with sweetened whipped cream.

Garnish with basil if desired and serve. Serves 8
