I like to make my breakfast table as pretty as possible. This peach sauce adds a warm golden color to the table and terrific flavor to pancakes, waffles and French toast.

I "hate" to be one of THOSE people who see a recipe and change most EVERYTHING about it but here goes. I hope this helps someone? I used 3 "medium" ripe peaces and cut into bite size pieces. I used 1/2 c. of water and only 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch....a healthy "pinch" of nutmeg and used brown sugar instead of white and NO almond extract. It was perfect with loads of fresh peach taste. This recipe is a GREAT "base" recipe and sometimes that's more then you need. THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this!! By the way....we used it on pancakes and will use the small bit left on ice-cream.

This is a great, simple, homey recipe. I use it on both French Toast and pork chops. I make few changes -- If using sweet fresh peaches, I cut down the sugar to 1 Tbsp Splenda, use 3 cups fresh peaches instead of 1 cup, use a dash of cinnamom instead of nutmeg, and omit the almond extract (a personal preference you may not share). When making this for a dinner sauce, I add a splash of white wine to peach sauce as it boils down. I think this will freeze OK, tho I haven't tried it yet. But sounds like a great way to preserve those wonderful, local, late season peaches into winter. Read More

Very good! Aside from using frozen peaches, I followed the recipe. The sauce was very thick so I ended up adding more peaches (which were pretty juicy). We had this on waffles with whipped cream - and will have the rest with coffee cake. Thanks! Read More

I doubled the peaches and the water. What a great treat to have on today's sourdough pancakes! Read More

This was great as a topping for vanilla bean ice cream! The only thing about the recipe I changed was that I used lemon juice instead of almond extract. Read More

made this to put over an angel food cake. It was a bit bland and almost too sweet, but still yummy. Next time I wont put as much sugar in it and may put more peaches in. We served over the angel food slices and covered with whipped cream. Read More

Great sauce for crepes or waffles. I added a bit of cinnamon and a smash of peach flavored Vodka. *Made this again and used brown sugar, no cinnamon and more peach vodka. Let the vodka boil off so that only the flavour is left behind. Read More

This recipe was good except that it was to thick so I had to add more water. I would cut the cornstarch in half down to 1 tablespoon (for two). I might also think of omitting the nutmeg, gave it an odd unexpected taste. I added Pecans as a toper to the sauce and poured it over Grouper Fish. Outstanding! Read More

Flavor wasn't very good, and i had to add so much water to counter all the cornstarch since, it turned into goop. Overall, not a good recipe. If you're looking for something that tastes like peaches and is more like syrup than this is not the recipe for you! Read More
