Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Dessert / #FarmersMarketWeek


Welcome to #FarmersMarketWeek! I am so glad you are here! This week I am joining my fellow bloggers in making and sharing some wonderful and delicious recipes using products found at your local farmers market. I love the farmers market for their fresh and delicious  fruit! Have you ever bought fruit at a Farmers Market? I found both Rainier cherries and Bing cherries the last time I was there, and they smelled so incredible, I had to make them mine! Later that day I stopped at the grocery, picked up a package of Naan Bread and the result is the recipe below! I hope you enjoy these Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Desserts!

Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Dessert 
(makes 4 desserts)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1/2 pound fresh Bing Cherries
1/2 pound fresh Rainier Cherries
8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened
4 tablespoons Sour Cream
4 pieces of Naan Bread
1/4 pound Milk Chocolate



Wash the Bing cherries, and pit each one. Chop the cherries in half, and chop some of them in quarters. This gives the cherries an eye catching presentation, and makes this dessert easy to eat.


Do the same with the Rainier cherries.

Make the sauce by mixing together the softened cream cheese and the sour cream. Blend with a mixer to get a smooth finish. 

Grill the naan breads on the grill. The grill flavor on the bread is awesome, and it lends some crispiness to the finish product. Flip the bread over twice on each side.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Now let's put it all together: Spread the sauce over the grilled breads. Add the cherries, distributing them evenly on the bread. Drizzle the chocolate over the top. Enjoy!


 There are a lot of blogging friends joining in today and the rest of the week, to share their #FarmersMarketWeek recipes! Check through the list below for today's scrumptious ideas!

Improv Challenge~Simple Lemon Pound Cake

This months Improv Cooking Challenge is upon us again!! This month our two products to use are  Lemon and Sour Cream. A lot of different recipes went thru my head. I thought about dips, certainly appropriate for all the football parties going on everywhere. I considered some type of bread, but I just wasn't sure. I finally decided on a Lemon Pound Cake that I have baked several times in the past.  It's a simple cake, and if you are a lemon lover, it's perfect!

Simple Lemon Pound Cake 
(adapted from Southern Living)
Ingredients:

1 cup Butter, softened
2 1/2 cups Sugar
6 large Eggs, separated
3 cups Flour
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
8 oz. Sour Cream
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Lemon Extract
2 tablespoon Grated Lemon Rind
1/2 cup Sugar
Confectioners Sugar


Prep Work:

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Make sure your butter is softened.
Separate your eggs, into 2 different bowls
 Mix your baking soda into the flour.
Grate your lemon rind.
Grease and flour pan.
Cream your butter on medium speed.
Add your sugar, and beat, still on medium for 4-5 minutes.
I don't have any pictures of this, but add your egg yolks only,
1 at a time, beating after each one.
Now, we are going to add flour and sour cream alternately.
Starting with the flour and baking soda mixture, 
add some to your butter mix.
I usually scoop 2 spoonfuls each time.
Let the mixer mix in the flour mix.
Add a spoonful of sour cream.
Alternate with each until it has all be added.
You don't have to stop the mixer each time, but you 
might want to when you are adding the sour cream.
You don't want to be hit by flying batter!
Because you started with the flour,
the last thing in should be the last of the flour.
Add your lemon extract and vanilla extract.
Add your grated lemon rind.
Mix well.
Now we are going to make meringue.
If you don't have another mixer, put your batter in 
a large bowl until you are done making the meringue.
In your bowl, add your egg whites. 
Beat until foamy.
While the whites are mixing, add the sugar,
1 tablespoon at a time, until the peaks are stiff.
Gently fold the meringue into the batter. 
Pour batter into prepared pan.
 Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
Let cool on rack for 10 - 15 minutes, 
then remove from pan.
Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
Cake can  be served warm or room temperature.
Enjoy!
