Take your waffles to the next level with a delightfully easy peaches and cream topping.
Preheat and lightly grease a waffle iron. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
In a clean bowl, beat the eggs. Add the buttermilk, vanilla, melted butter and lemon zest and beat to combine. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Let sit for a few minutes. (Batter can be made ahead, covered, and refrigerated for up to a week.)
Lightly oil the sliced peaches and cook in a hot grill pan or outside on a grill until you get some nice grill marks.
Pour the batter into the hot waffle iron and cook until golden-brown and crisp.
Brush waffles with melted butter and top with grilled peaches, mascarpone, maple syrup, and pecans.
