Grilled Lemon Cake
This dessert recipe from Hey Grill Hey takes the cake. Then it slices it up, pops it on the barbie and adds delicious accompaniments in the form of fresh fruits and whipped cream. Really you can’t go wrong here. This idea would work for all sorts of loaf cakes like Madeira, chocolate or even a plain and simple sponge so even if you don’t like lemon cake you’re onto a winner.

Chocolate Marshmallow Banana Boats
The only downside of entertaining is having to take time out of socialising to prepare the food. The beauty of this recipe from Lick My Spoon is that you can get guests to prepare their own desserts! Just slit open some bananas, have a range of toppings to hand, sit back and let your friends and family create their own bundles of banana goodness.

Strawberry and Caramel S’mores
It may have come from Cravings of a Lunatic’s blog but there’s nothing crazy about this recipe. Strawberry, caramel and chocolate? That’s a flavour combo that makes complete sense. We love this easy twist on the classic s’mores recipe and with the addition of some strawberries could it even pass as healthier?

Honey Grilled Pineapple
With just three ingredients it goes without saying that this recipe is mouth-wateringly simple. Grilled pineapple is genius in itself, but with Wine and Glue’s honey and cinnamon sauce added it’s truly heavenly. Once you get a taste for grilled pineapple, don’t stop at just one topping. Try it with cream, caramel, melted chocolate… we’ll stop now because we’re drooling, but you get the picture.

The fun doesn’t stop here! The more sweet grilled treats out there in the world the better. Peaches can be grilled. Sugared doughnuts can be grilled. Even grapefruits can be grilled. The only limits are your imagination and the number of desserts you can fit on your barbie.
