Waffle Muffins #MuffinMonday

These hearty, delicious muffins are like a waffle to go....

Waffle Muffins

It's time for Muffin Monday...............

How are you all holding up as we start Week 3 of this terrible pandemic?  My family and friends are doing well.  The pandemic hasn't touch us physically, we are all still healthy for which I am thankful.

Several family members have been furloughed from work during this time.  Some are working at home.  Some are still going into work each day.  Some have taken a temporary pay cut.

My life hasn't really changed drastically, except that I am not as busy as I like to be.  The days are long but I keep them filled spending time in the kitchen and then blogging the results, binge watching tv shows, and getting the Teen's driving hours in. And napping.  I find myself taking a nap every day.  I think I'm turning into my mother!

I'm not the only one who is finding comfort in the kitchen.  Look at what my friends are serving up for Muffin Monday this month........

Muffin Monday

 #MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

Waffle Muffins

These muffins require an extra step but they are well worth it.  Once you combine your wet and dry ingredients, you need to whip up the egg whites and fold them in.

I was a little disappointed when I took these out of the oven and saw how they rose like a mountain surrounded by water.  Then I realized that this was going to assist in keeping the syrup on the muffins.  Once you brush the muffins with the syrup mixture you put them back into the oven to "set" the glaze.

These wonderful muffins are perfect just on their own with a cup of coffee in the morning but they would also be a great addition to a breakfast buffet or Easter brunch.
