It’s springtime and with nicer weather comes a lot of celebrations and gatherings. While my girlfriends do a lot of happy hours and evening get-togethers, with a packed work and family schedule, my evenings are busy. But a good weekend morning gathering? Sign me up!

And a weekend morning gathering doesn’t have to be a chore. It’s surprisingly easy to throw a “Spontaneous Brunch” if you have the right supplies on hand. Libby’s® Canned Fruits are fantastic for creating delicious, simple, and memorable recipes perfect for a quick and easy weekend brunch with family or friends. Check out how easy these peach waffles with homemade peach syrup are to make.

These are legit. The batter is thicker than a traditional waffle, which is why I will remind you that the texture is cake-like. But you need a sturdy waffle texture to hold the sweet pieces of canned peaches inside. Not to mention, to be able to handle a simple syrup like the peach one I recommend serving on the side.

I love to use Libby’s® canned fruit in my baked goods, as I shared with you in these Pear Crumble Muffins because they have a softer texture that doesn’t need to cook a long time. Other canned fruit, like peaches, work wonderfully with waffle batter! Nobody wants to bite into a delicious waffle with an uncooked piece of fruit, you know?

These Peaches and Cream Waffles with my Homemade Peach Syrup wow my guests and family every time I make them. Speaking of the syrup, if you watched the video, you saw that it’s nothing more than the canned peaches and a bit of the fruit juice blended until smooth. Super easy to make and the sweet peach flavor shines through.

Of course, I’ve made these waffles many times, and I like to double my batter and make extras to freeze. Simply place your waffles on a parchment lined baking sheet, freeze them, and transfer them to a zip bag. To enjoy them again, I simply toast them for a few minutes, and they are ready!

To keep these warm and while I get the table set up or wait for friends to arrive for brunch, I place them in my oven at 200F to keep warm directly on the rack. So easy, right?

One thing is for certain, my waffle maker gets a great workout with this recipe. “Keep them coming!” are words I hear often. Maybe it’s their amazing taste or the drizzle of warm homemade peach syrup… it’s probably all the things!

  • Author: Laura Fuentes


For the waffles:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 15-ounce can Libby’s Peach Slices in 100% Fruit Juice, drained
  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream

For the peach syrup:

  • 15 ounce can Libby’s Peach Slices, drained, liquid reserved


  1. Heat waffle iron.
  2. In a bowl (or blender), whisk the milk, Greek yogurt or sour cream, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Form a well in the center and add the wet mixture to the dry to form a smooth your batter.
  5. Chop peach slices into small pieces to fill 1/2 to 3/4 cup and save remaining slices for topping. Add chopped peaches to the batter and mix to combine.
  6. When iron is hot, spray lightly with non-stick spray (if necessary). Fill your waffle iron with enough batter to fill the cavity (this will vary by waffle iron) and cook until a golden brown crust forms.
  7. While waffles are cooking, add reserved peaches and the peaches from the second can into the blender. Add about 1/4 cup of the fruit juice to the blender and blend until smooth. For a thinner syrup, add additional fruit juice. Transfer syrup into a small saucepan and heat on low.
  8. Whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  9. Serve waffles warm, topped with whipped cream and peach syrup.

Wow. These look amazing.

My kids love cake doughnuts so we experiment different flavors by adding chopped fruit into the batter. They also make awesome “cookies” in the waffle iron!

Yum. We love to make baked french toast with fruit. Canned peaches help to make their own syrup in the pan. I can’t wait to try these.

My favorite is to use canned pineapple rings to grill and top on chicken or burgers!

Will be trying this out this week. I use canned fruit in my dairy free ambrosia salad.

When I was a kid, my friend’s mom used to make something called “hot fruit”. With canned peaches and other canned fruits. It was delicious!

I use applesauce in my banana bread and oatmeal bakes, to make them sweet and moist, without added fat.

Alex - April 29, 2018 Reply

Canned fruit is a great way to enjoy out of season fruit. We often serve it over oatmeal in the winter.

We love to substitute the milk or egg in our favorite pancake recipe with canned mango. We have trouble with it sticking sometimes, so we will have to try this one (gluten free).
We first tried this when we were out of eggs and had an over-ripe mango. Canned is so much easier than fresh or frozen.

I love making pineapple or tropical fruit muffins. It has an 8oz can of crushed pineapple, along with some shredded coconut and toasted pecans.

I love to use canned fruit for “old school” desserts. My husband’s grandma taught me how to make several quick desserts on a budget and canned fruits are great because they are always stocked and readily available in my pantry.

    Than you Kim!

This sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing, and the opportunity to enter the giveaway! My favorite recipe to used canned fruit is a pineapple upside down cake. I open the can of pineapple, reserve the liquid, and line the bottom of a cake pan with brown sugar, cinnamon, the pineapple rings, and I add cherries as well. I mix the cake according to the directions on the box, substituting the reserved pineapple liquid for the water in the cake instructions. Add the batter to the cake pan, and bake. Yum!

I can’t wait to try then. I also love to make Ambrosia Salad with the mandarin oranges and coconut. Especially when it is hot outside.

These look amazing! My family LOVES baked fruit in the fall. Canned peaches, pears, pineapple chunks and a few maraschino cherries sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar is soooooo good!

The canned fruit never makes it into anything because the kids eat it straight from the can.
