Cherry Waffles with Cherry Syrup

By June 16, 2016May 23rd, 2022No Comments
Just when you think I’ve shared every combination of breakfast waffles and pancakes your way (yes, remember those Beet Pancakes? J), I thought I’d share another fun twist to your traditional waffle recipe. Not to mention, these could be the perfect breakfast in bed for any father’s and husbands in your life 😉 Since it is fresh cherry season I thought this would be the perfect time to add some fresh cherries to your waffles, and smother the whole thing in a fresh, cherry syrup. Oh boy! Was this combination fantastic! Add some whole wheat to your waffles for a healthier, homemade twist. Hope you are having a wonderful Father’s Day weekend.

Author: Deals to Meals


  • 3 cup buttermilk or milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 tsp. baking powder
  • 1-2 cups fresh cherries or frozen, pit removed and cut in half
  • 4-4 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup apricot nectar or evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh cherries pit removed and cut in half


  • Waffles: In a large bowl, whisk together the waffle ingredients, wet items first and then dry. Add more or less milk until the batter is the right consistency of waffle batter. Whisk until smooth and then fold in the fresh cherries that have been cut in half and pits removed. Heat a waffle iron and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour a 1/4-1/2 cup of the batter into the waffle iron and bake until golden brown. While the waffles are cooking, make the cherry syrup.
    Syrup: In a sauce pan, add the butter, nectar, sugar and fresh cherries. Bring the syrup to a low boil and boil until the sugar is dissolved and smooth and silky. Serve the syrup over the cooked waffles.
