Grilled Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze and Grilled Peaches

Grilled Peaches:
2 peaches, ripe but firm, halved
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sweet white wine, such as marsala wine
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Grilled Pound Cake:
1/2 store-bought pound cake, sliced into 2-inch slices
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Cream Cheese Glaze:
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

For the grilled peaches: Prepare the grill to high heat. Lightly brush the cut sides of the peaches with the oil. Grill the peaches, cut-side down, until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes on each side. Boil the wine and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Transfer the peaches to a small dish and spoon the wine mixture over the peaches. Set aside, about 15 minutes. For the grilled pound cake: Preheat the grill to high heat. Lightly brush each slice of the cake with the butter on both sides. Place the cake on the grill and cook, about 2 minutes each side. Rotate each cake slice a quarter turn after 1 minute to create a crosshatch of grill marks. For the cream cheese glaze: Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, zest and orange juice in a medium bowl. Beat until smooth using a fork or electric mixer. Spread the cream cheese glaze on the grilled pound cakes. Place the grilled peaches on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
