Recipe Tips: Caramel Peach Upside Down Cake

Learn to make a great caramel-peach upside down cake.

Halve peaches along their natural seam, but leave skins on.

Once you've halved the peaches, cut each half into thirds.

Cook the caramel mixture until it turns an amber color. The longer you cook a caramel, the darker and more bitter it will get.

To get the best design, start from the inside and move out when arranging the peach slices in the caramel mixture. Arrange the peaches in a concentric circle.

The Caramel Peach Upside Down Cake is great for a barbecue, and the leftovers make a fantastic breakfast. We used grits to add crunchy, moist texture.
