Belgian Waffles & Cinnamon Poached Pears

While I absolutely love my savory breakfast, I like to venture out into sweeter territory once in a while. As a kid, my Nonna would make me poached apples and pears with cinnamon and brown sugar for breakfast. What were normally refreshing, crisp fruits turned to sweet, soft desserts. Inspired by my Nonna’s breakfast fruit and this wonderful fall weather, I decided to top fluffy belgian waffles with sweet cinnamon poached pears.

This breakfast combination is such a sweet treat and is made of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. The warm pear syrup fills the waffle squares, which makes for a perfectly sweet bite every time. The brown sugar and cinnamon combination tastes just like fall and the dollop of freshly whipped cream truly makes this breakfast a tasty morning treat.

Author: Pasta Ragazza


2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp butter, melted
Whipped cream

Poached Pears
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 pears, sliced



Start by heating your waffle iron and preheating the oven to 200°F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In separate bowl, whisk sugars, eggs, vanilla, milk, and butter until blended.

Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until just blended. Allow the batter to sit for 5-10 minutes so the baking powder can activate for fluffy waffles.

Brush some butter or non-stick cooking spray on the hot waffle iron. Give the batter one more good stir, then use a ladle to add the batter to the iron. Cook for just a couple minutes, or until the waffles are golden and crispy.

As you finish cooking the waffles, place them directly on the oven rack to keep them hot.

Poached Pears

In a small saucepan, add water, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Whisk the ingredients and heat until mixture reaches a simmer. Add pears and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the pears are tender. Remove the pears from the sauce and set aside.

Plate the waffles and place the pears on top. Drizzle a couple spoonfuls of the brown sugar sauce and top with whipped cream. Enjoy!
