We're constantly impressed with the creativity of our Baking Club members—we know they're very adept at taking recipes from the books we're cooking through and adapting them, whether to fit a differently-sized pan or to make up for a missing ingredient. But we did a double-take when Diana Holtzman posted a photo (below, right) of waffles this week. Why? Well, this month, the Club is baking through Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours—and there aren't any waffle recipes in the book.
What happens when you waffle a muffin? Is it a waffin? A muffle?Photo by Bobbi Lin, Diana Holzman
It turns out that Diana successfully waffled a muffin recipe! She turned Dorie's Great Grain Muffins into waffles by thining out the batter a little and adding "a touch more milk and reducing the butter slightly"—everything else remained the same. They turned out so well that she's planning on trying this technique with her other muffin recipes, too.
Are you ready to take your waffling to new places? After you test out a waffled version of your favorite muffins, we've got four other ideas to get you going:
And, if you're waffling on which breakfast dish to make, Erin DcDowell brought to life an idea of Jimmy Fallon's—the PanWaffle. She says, "One batter. Two textures. The best breakfast mashup since breakfast burritos."
