Spiced Waffle with Fresh Peaches
A little something that I put together for breakfast this morning.
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup orange juice
1 large egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
Whisk together the buttermilk, egg, oil, and 3/4 cup of the OJ, reserving the rest to adjust batter thickness. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until evenly blended. If needed, use remaining OJ to thin the batter to your preferred consistency. Cook in a waffle iron.
2 large peaches, peeled and sliced (approximately 2 cups)
1/2 cup orange-infused simple syrup
Heat the peaches and syrup in a saucepan, stirring occasionally, until peaches are heated through.
Serve waffle with a scattering of hot peaches and their juice/syrup. If desired, dollop some Greek yogurt on top.
And yes, we desired:
If you don't have any orange-infused simple syrup on hand (and it was only happenstance that I did), you might want to play around with 1/4 cup each of water and sugar and a bit of orange zest, instead. Or perhaps something else will tickle your fancy.
We were pretty happy with the way these turned out.
