Grilled Angel Food with Fruit Salsa

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Be sure to watch the angel food cake very carefully when grilling. Don't leave the grill for even a second, because it will brown very quickly! Use your favorite combination of fresh fruits for the salsa.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 1 minute

Total Time: 26 minutes

Yield: Serves 8-10


  • 1 prepared angel food cake
  • 1 cup chopped cantaloupe or honeydew melon
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, if desired
  • 4 cups any flavor sherbet or sorbet


In a medium bowl, combine fruit, sugar, lime juice, mint, and cayenne pepper and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.

When ready to serve, prepare and preheat grill. Slice cake into 8-10 large wedges and place, cut side down, on grill about 6-inches from medium coals. Grill for 30-60 seconds or until light golden brown. Carefully turn cake pieces and grill on second side for 30-60 seconds until light golden brown. Serve with the salsa and the sherbet.

I;ve gone to heaven, Member JaneThomas100

This dessert was the perfect end to our fully BBQ'd meal. The cake gets a little crispy on the grill, a great texture. The fruit salsa was amazing with the cake and sherbet. I can't wait to make it again!
