AND cinnamon honey butter. Ohmahgah.

It’s September! Am I still allowed to talk about peaches? I mean, if I can find good ones here, you can probably find them almost… anywhere?

Well, if anything, you still have a couple days or so to live up the rest of the peaches before they go into hiding. LIVE IT UP. You need to start saving up for winter anyway.

Something I’ve become over the last few months is a total breakfast carb freak. I mean, yeah, I’ve always liked pancakes and stuff but I usually prefer to have some eggs or something like that – especially so I don’t fall face first into the hardest food coma ever. Or even eggs with a pancake or two. BUT! Ever since popping this little bun in the oven I’ve wanted all the pancakes and waffles to exist ever in the universe.

Give me all of the pancakes and nobody will get hurt.

A few weeks ago I had these perfect pancakes at Marty’s Market and they came complete with a HUGE hunk of cinnamon butter on top. And the pancakes were all hot and steamy and this pile of butter was melting all over the sides and it was just… just…heavenly. So I’ve wanted the cinnamon butter ever since, it was basically all I could think about. Eddie makes pancakes every Sunday and I’ve thought about whipping it up for that, but I’m usually stuck in the corner of the couch refusing to move like a lump because it’s the one time of the week that I don’t cook a darn thing.

P.S. it’s fabulous.

So anyhoo, that’s where the butter came from. The peaches came from my still out of control fruit obsession – it HAS to be because it’s just so hydrating and juicy – and all I could think of was fluffy waffles with these caramly roasted peaches in syrup and tons of cinnamon. Plus, I’m still seeing an overabundance of peaches at the farmers market and I secretly wish it would last forever. The good news is that your peaches don’t have to be *perfect* (which is impossible to find anyway, right?) because you’re going to roast the heck out of them.

I’m not sure if I can eat any other waffles now. I want yeasted waffles all the time – they are absurdly fluffy and like a big fat cloud that I want to take a nap on but also that I want to cover in sugar and butter and cut into itty bitty pieces and savor. They have the slightest yeasted flavor, but in a totally good way if you know what I mean. In a sense they remind me of the Belgian waffles we could make in college, where you’d have to stand for like eight minutes waiting to cook your waffle in the single iron during breakfast or brunch, and quite possibly while you’re atrociously hungover which made it taste like the best waffle in all the land.

You get me?

This is kind of like my final summer hurrah because even though it will stay warm and lovely for another few weeks, the peaches will be gone and I’ll be left with the produce rejects. But it’s okay because it means make way for BUTTERNUT SQUASH! Some people lose their mind over pumpkin, I lose mine over butternut squash. You don’t even want to know. (but you do so.)

Now let’s have brunch?

Vanilla Yeasted Waffles with Roasted Peach Maple Syrup

Yield: serves 4 to 6

Total Time: 1.5 hours


vanilla yeasted waffles
1 1/2 cups warm whole milk
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

roasted peach maple syrup
3 peaches, chopped
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups maple syrup

cinnamon honey butter
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt


vanilla yeasted waffles
In a bowl, combine the warm milk, melted butter and honey. Add the yeast on top and stir, then let sit until foamy - about 15 minutes. Stir in the flour and salt until combined, then whisk in the eggs and vanilla paste. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for an hour before cooking. If desired, you can place in the fridge overnight and cook the next morning. In this house, I like to make the peach syrup and the butter.

Heat your waffle iron to the desired setting and add batter to the waffle maker. The yeasted waffles take a little longer than non-yeasted, so allow 5 minutes or so for each waffle. When ready, serve with the peach syrup and cinnamon butter!

roasted peach maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the chopped peaches on the baking sheet and toss with the coconut oil, cinnamon and salt. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, flipping once or twice, until softened and caramely.

Place the maple syrup in a saucepan over low heat and add the peaches (and any extra juice on the baking sheet). Heat over low heat until ready to serve.

cinnamon honey butter
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until combined. Store in the fridge until you finish it up!

    Yeasted waffles are my favourite waffles. Peaches are my favourite fruit. Cinnamon is my favourite spice. HOW ARE YOU WATCHING ME?

    Allowed? The only thing NOT allowed here is pumpkin; we still have peaches coming in for a couple of weeks according to my local farmers market. About the same time pumpkins will start to show up!

    I just bought a case of peaches; I am sad to see the go. Now if I could just find my waffle area I would make this but I will make do and try French toast. With a peach cocktail. Yes for breakfast; it has fruit in it!

    I made these waffles this morning for breakfast and they were a huge hit with my family. I like that they weren’t too yeasty – just like you said :) I didn’t have any peaches so I roasted some pears and added them to the maple syrup instead – delicious! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! I’m half way through your cookbook and am loving that, too! Such a fun read and lots of great food.

    I made these and with my waffle maker (Krups belgian waffle maker – makes 4 thick belgian waffles) they were totally burnt at 5 min. At 3 min they were perfect. So the cooking time depends on type of waffle iron. I make waffles all the time in mine and it seemed these were taking forever and I should have checked them earlier so I didn’t burn half the batch. The ones that didn’t burn were damn tasty!!

    I made those as well, cooked them at 3.5 minutes. My kiddo and husband said they were the best ever.. i like my pumpking waffles with whole wheat flour and oatmeal– a lot more texture and spice, and you don’t feel guity eating them.

    These have been tempting me for awhile now so decided to take the plunge today for tomorrow morning. The batter is very liquidy so wondering how it rises? I am wondering if I did something wrong!
