Although I have some standby fave peach recipes, one of my goals for this peach season is to try some new peach delicacies. Peach Waffles was on that list. Fortunately in an Internet search I located one quickly—at mrbreakfast.com, by a blogger who perfects the art of preparing breakfasts and whose blog features nothing but absolutely terrific recipes for that first meal of the day.
We’re still hauling in by the bucketloads fresh peaches off our trees, so this weekend we staged a peach cook-a-thon. Did I even put a dent in the peach supply by preparing this and other recipes? Not hardly. In my future I see the packing of peaches to freeze as well as pulling down the canning jars and dusting off the peach jam recipe to put lots of these fresh-plucked jewels away for other days.
Whew! What a cook-a-thon weekend it was. Glad I had these waffles on Saturday morning to fortify me; they were good to the last peachy bite.
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar (or sugar substitute)
2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (or salt substitute)
1 cup milk (we use skim)
1 1/2 cups sliced peaches, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
In a large metal or glass bowl cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs and beat until everything is well-mixed. In a separate bowl sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture along with the milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Mix well. Fold in the peach pieces. Bake in a well-greased waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve with your favorite syrup and with fresh peach slices on top. Makes 6 servings.
