When plums are at their juiciest best, they're great in a quick dessert. If you don't already have the grill going, just broil or toast the pound cake until golden.
1. Mix plums with pomegranate molasses, brandy, and sugar. Let steep until juicy and flavorful, at least 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, grill pound-cake slices over medium heat on both sides until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes.
3. Spoon plums onto cake slices, dividing evenly, and top with whipped cream and almonds.
