PEACHES AND CREAM WAFFLES – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

PEACHES AND CREAM WAFFLES - Butter with a Side of Bread


Peaches and Cream Waffles made with a crispy Belgian waffle recipe topped with a simple homemade chunky peach syrup and sweet cream. Perfect waffle recipe for special occasions and brunch!

We combined two favorites for this delicious recipe and while the recipes are great on their own, putting them together like this has given us incredible results. The waffles are so perfectly crispy, even when topped with fresh peaches and cream, creating a powerful peaches and cream flavor that will have you licking the plate clean!

Do I have to use fresh peaches?

While I love this recipe with fresh peaches, and think it tastes AMAZING you can honestly use canned or even frozen (thawed) peach slices if it’s easier. Especially if you’re wanting to enjoy this recipe when peaches aren’t in season.

My recipe for this peach syrup is sort of like a mix between peach pie filling and traditional peach syrup. It’s chunky and filled with peaches giving you that sweet and tangy summer-feel that you look forward to when biting into a delicious and juicy peach! Of course, you can choose between chopping up fresh peaches or using canned peaches depending on your preferences.

How to make Peaches and Cream Waffles

How to make the crispy Belgian Waffles:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees and preheat your waffle maker

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl using a whisk to combine.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt your butter.

In a separate bowl, beat your egg yolk with a fork until it’s fluffy, add in the milk, vanilla, and butter to mix.

Combine the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients.

In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are stiff peaks (you can do this in a stand mixer, with an electric mixer, or by hand).

Combine it all by carefully folding the egg whites into the batter. Being gentle but thorough to make sure that it is all stirred in.

Cook in the waffle maker until golden brown.

Place the waffles directly on the oven racks to keep warm until you’re ready to serve. Don’t stack the waffles!

How to make the Peach Syrup

I recommend making the peach syrup before making the waffles. Making it up to a few days in advance can really really help cut down on the time spent in the kitchen and the number of dishes needing to be washed at once!

Peel and slice your peaches and then set them aside. I recommend the boiling water and ice bath method for easy peach peeling.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon.

Divide about ⅓ of the peach slices and add to a bowl with the cornstarch mixture. Pour in water and stir to combine.

Crush the peaches with a potato masher or puree them using an immersion blender. Stir the peaches, they will be pale and cloudy.

Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stir and then return to the microwave for 2 more minutes. Stir again and microwave for a final 2 minutes.

While the mixture is in the microwave, chop up the remaining peaches into very small pieces.

Stir in the butter and vanilla. The mix will look like a thin jam. Pour in the remaining chopped peaches and stir.

Microwave the entire mixture for 1 minute and then stir. The syrup will be thick.

Transfer to a jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Heat for 1-2 minutes before serving.

How to assemble the peaches and cream waffles

Make whipped cream (see link below), or pull it out of the fridge while you assemble the plates. If you make whipped cream, I recommend my brown sugar whipped cream (it’s only three ingredients and the flavor goes great with peaches!)

  • Warm your peach syrup as directed.
  • On a plate, lay your warm crispy Belgian waffle down.
  • Top with as much of the thick and warm peach syrup as you want.
  • Add enough whipped cream to make your ancestors happy.
  • Grab a fork and dig in!

How to make crispy Belgian Waffles

What is the difference between a waffle and a Belgian waffle?

Belgian waffles are thicker than regular waffles and use a leavening agent or egg whites to make the batter light and fluffy. This recipe uses egg whites, and it’s worth the added effort, I promise.

How do you keep waffles from getting soggy?

Moisture is the leading cause of a soggy waffle (doesn’t that sound like a good band name?) You’ll notice that in my directions I said not to stack the waffles in your oven. Stacking waffles creates extra (unnecessary) moisture between the touching waffles, which results in softer (or soggy) waffles. To keep them nice and crisp, keep them in the oven when warm, but don’t let them touch.

So if you’re looking to enjoy an incredible crispy Belgian waffle recipe that’s been made even better with the delicious flavors of peaches and cream, you’re going to want to add this one to your meal plan and schedule it often.
