Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs

    ½ cup whipping cream
    ½ cup sour cream
    2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed
    Zest of 1 lemon
    1 angel food cake (1 pound)
    32 strawberries (2 pounds), hulled to create a V-shaped hollow
    6 tablespoons strawberry jam

  1. Using a mixer, beat whipping cream, sour cream, sugar, and lemon zest until thick enough to hold a shape. Chill in the refrigerator while you prepare kebabs.
  2. Cut cake into approximately 32 1.5 inch chunks.
  3. Put strawberries in a large bowl. Warm jam in a separate microwave-safe bowl until bubbling, about 30 seconds. Add jam to strawberries, cover, and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Hold a pair of bamboo skewers so they’re slightly separated and thread a chunk of cake onto them, then a berry crosswise, then another chunk of cake and another berry. Repeat to make 15 more kebabs.
  5. Grill kebabs on electric indoor grill at 350°F until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with cream mixture.
