Waffles and Caramelized Brown Sugar Peaches

I came up with this one night when we were having waffles for dinner but wanted fruit as our topping. These peaches are so wonderful! Everything I thought they would be! :) And a waffle with peaches and whipped cream is all-right by me!


Waffles: (or use your favorite or from a box is great too!)
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg or 2 egg whites
1 cup fat free milk
2 tablespoons canola oil

3 cans peaches in light syrup, drain, but save the juice
1 teaspoon tub butter
4-5 tablespoons brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg

1. Stir all your dry waffle ingredients together. In a separate bowl combine the egg, milk, and oil. Pour your wet ingredients into the dry. Mix just until all combined. Don't over mix, we want nice fluffy waffles don't we?
2. Ok, cook the waffles and while they are cooking let's caramelize some peaches. It is really easy. Heat a saucepan on the stove to medium heat. Add your butter and wait until it has melted then add in all your peaches. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg and turn your heat me medium low. Add a splash of your reserved peach juice to make a nice sauce. Now just let the peaches simmer in the brown sugary goodness until all you waffles are cooked. If it seems like the peaches are cooking out all the liquid and start to stick to the bottom of the pan, add a bit more peace juice. You want a nice saucy consistency.
3. When you waffles are all cooked top with peaches and a dollop of whipped topping! yum!!

* Serve these waffles with homemade smoothies, hash browns, eggs, or bacon! Yum, we love breakfast for dinner.
