Ready In:
8 waffles




  • For cinnamon peach compote:

  • Combine peaches, brown sugar 1/4 cup water, cinnamon and nutmeg in heavy medium sauce pan.
  • Cook compote over medium heat until liquid is reduced to medium think syrup, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
  • For Waffles:

  • Put oven race in middle position and put a large metal cooling rack directly on it.
  • Preheat oven to 250°F and preheat waffle iron.
  • Whisk together flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl.
  • Whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and almond extract in another bowl, then whisk into flour mixture until just combined.
  • Brush hot waffle iron lightly with vegetable oil and pour a slightly rounded 1/2 cup of batter into each waffle mold.
  • Cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer as cooked to rack in oven to keep warm, keeping waffles in 1 layer to stay crisp. Make more waffle in same manner.
  • NOTE: If using a regular waffle iron (not Belgian), batter will yield about 14 waffles using 1/3 cup per waffle.
  • To serve:

  • Place waffle on dish, add compote, sweetened whipped cream and toasted almonds on top.

  1. Excellent. Prepared this morning and it was very easy to put together. I did accidentally leave out the butter from the batter, but the waffles still turned out fine. I did not have any buttermilk so I substituted half plain non-fat yogurt and half milk. I did not make the whipped cream and almond topping but it would make the waffles very decadent if serving to guests. Next time I may increase the amount of almond extract in the batter. Thank you for a great recipe!
  2. Since there are just 2 of us, I cut this recipe in half! VERY SIMPLE, VERY TASTY! I especially liked the peach sauce, something I can do up for other uses as well! I did leave off the whipped cream, but the toasted almonds were a great addition! Thanks for the keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
