Grilled Angel Food Cake with Strawberries

One night I goofed, accidentally using the balsamic butter I save for grilling chicken on my pound cake. What a delicious mistake that my entire family loved! For a patriotic look, add a drizzle of blueberry syrup. —Tammy Hathaway, Freeman Twp, Maine

    Unique flavor. I enjoyed. My local grocery store did not carry blueberry syrup so I left it off. Not sure it needed it anyway.
