3 cups Strawberries ripe, hulled and chopped
3 tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 tbsp Orange Juice or orange liqueur
283 g Prepared Angel Food Cake store-bought or homemade


1) Oil grill and heat barbecue to medium. Place strawberries in a very large foil pie plate. Stir in sugar and liqueur. Cover plate tightly with foil. Slice angel food cake into 8 wedges.
2) Place pie plate on grill. Barbecue, covered, 6 minutes, then push to side of grill. Arrange cake wedges on grill. Barbecue, uncovered, just until grill marks form, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove each wedge as it is done to a plate. Lift up a corner of foil from pie plate. Strawberries should still be chunky, but releasing enough juices to make a thin sauce. If necessary, re-cover and continue grilling until strawberries are saucy, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from grill and discard foil. Spoon strawberry sauce over each wedge. Excellent with dollops of whipped cream or plain or vanilla yogurt and a sprig of mint.
