Another recipe for my Gilmore Girls Recipe Project! Today it’s all about peaches and waffles, specifically peach sauce on waffles with yogurt. Sounds dreamy, right?
This cinnamon maple peach sauce is absolutely amazing. Since we’re in the middle of September, I make it with a lot of cinnamon, along with dark muscovado which gives the sauce a deep color and caramel flavor. For a second you might even thing you’re eating apples.
If you can, get really ripe peaches, because that way you don’t need a lot of sugar. When a peach is really ripe, the skin can get wrinkly, but the peach is still perfect on the inside. These are the peaches ideal of sauces, as you have to peel them anyway.
This peach sauce is chunky, because I like chunks of fruit, especially on waffles (or pancakes), but you can always puree it and make a smooth sauce. (More on that in the recipe’s notes.)
And the waffles? Also amazing! They’re the same as the ones in this recipe and this is the way I always make my waffles. They’re buttery, fluffy and soft, but crispy on the outside.
Now, to make these waffles all the way GG-style, I probably should’ve put ice cream or whipped cream on top, but I opted for Greek yogurt. I do think Sookie would approve.
I just really love cold yogurt on top of warm waffles and sauce. It’s also a nice contrast to the overall sweetness of this dish.
