Peach Waffles with Salted Caramel Sauce

It’s Peach Season!! I love those fresh peaches. Here’s a recipe for peach waffles that will make your mouth sing. And the caramel sauce is not only delicious on the waffles, you can use it on ice cream or dipping apples! And it’s easy!

My husband ate a pint of the sauce in less than a week – on applesauce!!

Here’s how to make the sauce:

Place the sugar and water in a saucepan. Using medium-low heat, start melting the sugar, stirring frequently.

As it starts to form snowy looking clumps,

add 1/3 of the butter.

Continue to heat and stir.

When the butter is fully melted and you can see the sugar beginning to liquify, add another 1/3 of the butter, heating and stirring.

When it turns a caramel color, add the remaining butter

and stir until it’s a saucy consistency.

Continue to cook on low for about 5 minutes, stirring often.

Slowly stir in the cream and cook until there are no sugar crystals left. But BE CAREFUL – Sugar gets very hot!

Stir in the salt and set aside.

Store any leftovers in a jar with a tight lid in the refrigerator. It should last a week or two.

And now for the waffles:

Prepare the peaches by giving them a quick blanche. Bring some unsalted water to a boil, then carefully drop the peaches in.

Remove from the heat and let them sit for about 2-3 minutes. Drain them and run under cold water. The skins should just slip right off. Let them cool, then cut them.

 

Use the basic buttermilk waffle recipe, found here, and add 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar to the batter.

Cut the peaches into small bits – I used large pieces and they tended to stick to the waffle iron.

Stir 2 cups of the peaches into the batter.

Pour about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of batter onto the waffle iron. Make sure peaches are evenly distributed. I use a Belgian waffle maker. The depressions are deeper and they hold more of the good topping stuff!!

Keep them warm n the oven as you continue to cook, or have everyone start serving themselves.

Top the waffles with whipped cream, caramel sauce and more fresh, chopped peaches. Devine!
