Grilled Peach Shortcake

I love fruit in season and peaches are so fabulous when they are fresh, sweet and juicy. Love them!! I have seen many recipes using grilled peaches and then came up with this one. You may think that is chocolate sauce drizzled on the peaches but not it is balsamic reduction and it is fabulous!!! Grab some peaches and give this recipe a try. If you don’t want to make your own cake the little cakes that you make strawberry shortcake would work great too!!
