Waffles For Breakfast. With A Peach Syrup.

Mr. Hawthorne visited one of our local markets and came back with some of the juiciest, sweetest peaches I've had since ... well, since last peach season.
I've already made some delicious peach ice cream, and this morning, I decided to make waffles for breakfast with a peach syrup.

 Just in time to enjoy for your weekend mornings, I give you:

Rosie's Waffles and Peach Syrup

For waffles:
 2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups milk
1/2 stick butter, melted 
2 eggs, separated

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk milk, melted butter, egg yolks, and vanilla.
Stir milk mixture into dry ingredients and mix well.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Fold in egg whites.
Cook in waffle maker according to directions.
I always cook a minute or two longer to get a crisper waffle.

For peach syrup:
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 peaches, peeled and chopped

In a small sauce pan, combine all ingredients.  Stir over low heat until butter melts, sugar dissolves, and mixture is smooth and heated through.
Pour over waffles.
