Cherry Waffles with Maple Yogurt Sauce

Cherry Waffles with Maple Yogurt Sauce

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!

    I love that picture of the waffles with all the cherries resting in the nooks. These look delicious Reeni! I would wake up to these any morning:)

    I love anything with cherry in it – so that these would absorb my thoughts is a given. But as someone who finds maple syrup way too sweet, am just chomping at the bit to mix it up with Greek yoghurt and vanilla. What a grand idea! Where have you been my entire life?
