What happened?  Let me show you how an English Muffin became a Waffle

What will you now call an English Muffin once it turns into a Waffle … Muffle, Wafmuf, or maybe a Waffin??? 

Let me know your suggestions in the comments, please.

What is an English Muffin?

English muffins, or breakfast muffins as they are known in their origin the United Kingdom, are a small, round, flat yeast-leavened bread which is commonly sliced horizontally, toasted, and buttered.

What is a Waffle?

A waffle is a dish made from leavened batter or dough that is cooked between two plates that are patterned to give a characteristic size, shape, and surface impression. There are many variations based on the type of waffle iron and recipe used.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1ml of salt (Omit if adding the grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese)
  • 1 tsp. grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese depending on taste.
  • Olive oil for your waffle pan

  • Add the finely grated cheese and mix in (if you add this, then omit the salt).
  • Blend together the coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Crack one egg at a time and mix through and then add the next.
  • The dough will be soft and sticky, but that’s totally fine.
  • Let it rest while you heat up the waffle griddle.
  • Depending on your own waffle machine, you may wish to add a light coating of oil.
  • I use a paintbrush dipped into VOO (Virgin Olive Oil) which I keep in the fridge in a separate glass container for this purpose.
  • Once the griddle is heated, spoon the dough onto the griddle and spread it out slightly, if needed, and bake until nice golden color.
  • Depending on the size of your griddle, you may be able to make one LARGE waffle or two smaller ones.
  • Serve immediately and top with any savory topping of your choice.
  • I had leftover dinner from the previous evening (green bean stew with mutton) and only nuked some and spooned it on the waffle and dinner was ready!
  • Improvisation at its best!
