Easy Peach Topping

by Laura

My family loves peaches. We love fresh best, but if we can’t have fresh, canned is the next best thing.

I have a recipe for a fresh peach topping for waffles, desserts, and etc that we love. However, I decided I needed to have a version that uses canned peaches for when all those fresh peaches are gone.

This easy peach topping is the recipe I came up with that uses peaches canned in juice and utilizes the juice in the recipe too. This just helps to amp up the peach flavor.

Easy Peach Topping



  • 1 (29 oz) can of peaches packed in juice
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  1. Drain peaches, but reserve juice and set aside. Just peach slices into bite sized pieces. I cut each slice into thirds.
  2. Add 2 cup of juice (add water if needed to make 2 cups) to a sauce pan and whisk in the cornstarch. Add in the sugar,cinnamon, vanilla, and diced peaches and stir together.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for a few minutes until thickened. Allow to cool and serve over waffles, pancakes, desserts, etc. Makes 3 cups.

Made this today. It turned out pretty good. I was able to use 2 cups of juice. I made it as the recipe stated however at first I forgot to add the vanilla and tasted it that way. It was good then I added the vanilla and taste tested again. I think next time I would leave the vanilla out or maybe try some almond extract. It was easy to make. The sauce was sweet and the peaches had a little tartness. The true test will be tonight as we are going to try it on top of cheesecake.
