This cinnamon peach syrup is so sweet and delicious! It’s the perfect topping for pancakes, waffles, ice cream – you name it!
I mentioned last week the glut of fresh peaches that I worked my way through last month, and I have another delicious fresh peach recipe to share with you today! This cinnamon peach syrup is always a favorite at my house. It’s sort of a cross between a syrup and a sauce, with chunks of sweet and juicy peaches and a sweet cinnamon-y syrup base.
My kids love to pour it over everything, from breakfast foods like pancakes and waffles, to desserts like ice cream or doughnuts. It’s so versatile and good for so many things! I generally like to make it with fresh peaches, but you could definitely use frozen peaches in a pinch. It takes only a few minutes to make, and adds the perfect sweet touch to your breakfast or dessert!
This syrup will keep in the fridge for about a week, or in the freezer for several months. I think it’s best warm, but my kids will eat it either warm or cold. (They would probably just sit down and eat it with a spoon if I let them.) Be sure to add the lemon juice to the syrup, because it will prevent the peaches from turning an unappealing brown color. (Yuck!) This syrup is so simple and delicious, and it’s a great way to enjoy fresh summer peaches!
