An irresistible recipe for crispy waffles studded with fresh, succulent cherries. The cherries melt into candy-like jewels in the light and fluffy waffles and give them a natural sweetness. A delicious recipe for spicing up your brunch or breakfast!
Halfway through cooking I had the idea to add sliced almonds to the batter. Because cherries love almonds. Cherry pits have a natural almond flavor to them. I ate them both ways and the almonds aren’t crucial to the recipe but add a bit of crunch and nutrition.
Although I like maple syrup I’m not crazy about it all on its own. I usually combine it with other flavors. Here I’ve whisked it into Greek yogurt with cinnamon and a dash of vanilla to make a creamy sauce. Almond extract would work well too, in the sauce and in the batter. Keep in mind a little almond extract goes a long way and is a lot stronger than vanilla extract. It requires a light touch. I ruined not only a cake once because I used too much but coconut macaroons too. Use a 1/8 teaspoon here in place of the vanilla extract.
Take advantage of all the ripe cherries in the markets right now and make these mouth-watering treats!
