Have you ever tried a grilled donut before? It’s pretty much the best thing to do with day old donuts. You want to know whats ever better? Making a warm ice cream sandwich with them and smothering it with a Blackberry and Blueberry reduction.
Grilling day old donuts is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now but could never get around to having any donuts left over. So I bought enough to make sure I could have a few left over with a promise to the family if they left them alone I’d make something amazing with them!
I used some glazed donuts and they were perfect for grilling. The sugar begins to caramelize and when they cool it turns into a candy-like shell on the donut. It only takes a few minutes for a donut to into this caramelized bite of heaven. Seriously, when I’m on a cheat day I’m going all out and making a grilled donut. every. single. time.
And the combination of cold and warm is just so comforting! This Blackberry and Blueberry reduction simmered in honey and a little lemon size almost makes this feel like a pie a la mode more than an ice cream sandwich. And I’m really OK with that. I’m not losing any sleep at night, I promise you!
So pick up a fork and knife and dig in, and spoon up all the melted ice cream mixed with the sauce and get ready for blue smiles! You’ll get what I’m talking about when you make it.
This sauce is perfect hot or cold by the way, it’s amazing right off the skillet, or let it cool down and thicken up and pour it over your ice cream, or in the morning, on your pancakes, waffles, or french toast!
Whats even better about this recipe is it’s a perfect desert to bring to a camping trip! Everything can be cooked on the grill. Store the ice cream in the cooler (obviously) and let everyone spoon out the ice cream and blackberry blueberry sauce onto the grilled donut and enjoy all that nature has to provide.
