Grilled Cheese...cake (mmhmm, that's right)

In the pound cake post, I alluded to the phenomenon known as grilled cheesecake.  Well, dear readers, I did it.  And it was good.

I first learned about grilled cheesecake from CakeSpy, the devilish dessert angel who lives in Seattle and blogs about all things sweet.  Her Grilled Cheesecake: A Sweet Take on a Classic Sandwich post intrigued me the very first time I read about it.  Since I don't normally have pound cake around, I'd never been brazen enough to try it on my own.

Keep it sweet. Pin It
