Duffle or waffnut?

I just checked my email, and King Arthur flour announced tomorrow is National waffle day. I love waffles. Some days however, like today when wisdom teeth are causing me hassles, I don't have the drive to leap out into the kitchen and make them.  I was reminded about these though.  I made these back in May when I saw them done online.  Not sure where but thought I would share. They were sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.


To start you need as many plain glazed donuts as your heart desires.  Krispy Kremes were mentioned, I chose 4 for a £1 at my local supermarket though. 



A preheated waffle machine, This is mine, it is about 20 years old and it's looking it, she however works beautifully for our needs.


When your waffle machine is ready and heated around medium on mine, simply place suitable amount of donuts in machine and squish down.  Follow your machines guidelines, these took around a minute or 2 until the green light let me know they were ready

They came out smelling and looking fantastic, the glaze had caramelised leaving sugar strands as I pulled them off the hot plates. Insides were warm, soft, compact  and densely fluffy with classic donut flavour.  The outsides had a light crunchy caramel coating. 

I've also in the past used my waffle machine to bake cookies and toast sandwiches,  I have also seen people make french toast in them too.  If you have a waffle machine in your cupboard collecting dust, why not drag it out and show it some love.  And remember why you bought one in the first place
