thanks to a gift from some thoughtful guests, i tried a new ‘no recipe’ recipe this morning for breakfast, whole wheat waffles with skillet peaches.
yesterday some lovely folks checked-in an brought me some peaches from their hometown! some people are just to sweet. so i though it was only fitting to incorporate the peaches into this mornings breakfast.
the plan was to use them in a sauce for topping waffles.
let’s start with the waffle recipe. my recipe is basic and simple but i love it. here goes:
in a large bowl, mix 2 cups AP flour (in the case i used 1 cup AP flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour) 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt.
in a medium bowl mix together 2 tsp melted butter, two eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 cups buttermilk. add your wet mixture to your dry mixture. mix until just combined.
that’s it! easy. i find i prefer my waffle mix on the thicker side.
now, for the topping. skillet peaches! this is where the ‘no recipe’ recipe comes into play. in a saucepan i added a half a stick of butter, about 1/2 cup of brown sugar (yeah – i didn’t promise it would be healthy). once melted i added the peaches (drained and sliced). then i added a pinch of salt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. i cooked it until everything was hot and bubbly.
and that’s it! to make them look pretty i added some whipped cream. the skillet peaches will have a good amount of sauce with them, but i think even the smallest amount of maple syrup is essential when it comes to pancakes and waffles.
even though it was canned peaches and i had no recipes, these waffles turned out really nicely! and the peaches were delicious! i will definitely be making this again soon.
whats your favorite addition to a plain waffle?
