Kumquat Upside-Down Cake

kumquat cake

A seasonal version of an American classic. Every year at this time when the fruit on kumquat trees all ripen simultaneously, I am inspired to create new recipes with these sweet and tart tiny grape size citrus. The peel is sweet and the pulp is tart. I like to pick them and pop the whole fruit directly into my mouth. What a sensation! The kumquat is rich in vitamin C and fiber and a versatile fruit that pairs well with meats, vegetables, bourbon (check out my kumquat old fashioned) and sweets.
