Well friends we made it! It is officially BBQ season again in Canada. As we celebrate the unofficial start of summer this Victoria Day how fitting I am also kicking off BBQ week with this recipe for grilled fruit and cake Kabobs. Grilled desserts are the perfect end to a summer meal!
Myself along with 22 other bloggers are sharing our favorite recipes for the grill all week long. Lot of recipes and inspiration for the BBQ season including grilled mains, sides and of course grilled desserts
These easy to make fruit and cake Kabobs take just a few minutes to put together and make the perfect summer dessert. They are delicious served with a creamy dip such as yogurt or whipped cream, but we prefer them straight off the grill.
Lightly sweetened with a honey cinnamon glaze, the cake toasts up to a golden sweet crunch. The glaze enhances the flavor and juiciness of the berries.
Of course, as luck would have it, our grill kicked the bucket and we will be on the hunt for a new one. I think it nearly broke my husbands heart as he has had his giant gas BBQ for a long time. It really didn’t owe us anything and probably should have been replaced last summer.
My brother-in-law came to the rescue. He has really neat BBQ that has two completely separate grills. The main one he uses to cook for the meat eaters and the smaller side he uses to cook for the vegans and vegetarians. Brilliant idea! Although he might have to switch it up as more of us are now meatless than meat eaters!
I grilled these on the meatless side of course. We were there celebrating both my sister and my brothers birthdays so it worked out perfectly.
Since these are brushed with a sticky honey glaze, be sure to start with a clean grill and spray it with a cooking spray before placing them on the grill. They only take 2 or 3 minutes on each side on medium heat. Just watch carefully as you don’t want burnt cake and soggy berries!
Before you scroll down to the Grilled Fruit & Cake Kabobs recipe below, be sure to visit today’s bloggers for more grilled desserts and other delicious barbecue ideas!
I will be back on Friday to share my recipe for grilled vegetarian pizza.
Until next time…..

Happy spring, Maureen!
Glad spring has finally come to Canada. That means my relatives up there will be happy that they can get outside and grill, garden and just be out of doors!!! My son and DIL are in South Dakota and spring has barely begun there, too. Crazy long winter this year!
Love your grilling ideas and I’ll check out some of the other bbq posts this week. Happily pinned a couple of photos for later grilling, thanks,
I think grilled desserts are extra fun because they’re a little unexpected. This looks delicious!
Great grilled fruit skewers. I want to try this.
