Pancake Souffle Muffins with Strawberry Maple Syrup
- 10- 1/2 ounces, weight All-purpose Flour
- 4- 1/2 ounces, weight Cake Flour
- 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/4 teaspoons Cinnamon, (optional)
- 6 whole Eggs, Separated And At Room Temperature
- 3/4 teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
- 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted And Cooled Slightly
- 6 Tablespoons Sugar, Granulated
- 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 3-13 cups Buttermilk At Room Temperature
- 1- 1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
- 1- 1/2 cup Strawberries, Hulled And Quartered
DirectionsPreheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Generously spray two 12-cup muffin pans with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
In a large, clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 to 3 minutes.
In another large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the mixer on medium-high speed until light yellow and thick ribbons form, about 6 minutes.
Add the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla; mix on medium-low speed until combined, about 30 seconds.
Add one-third of the dry ingredients and mix on low speed.
Add one-third of the buttermilk and mix to combine.
Alternate adding the remaining dry ingredients and buttermilk, ending with the buttermilk and mixing until just combined.
With a large rubber spatula, gently fold the whites into the batter, leaving some streaks.
Scoop about 1/2 cup of the batter into each muffin cup you can fill the cups to the rims.
Bake until browned on top and puffed, and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out dry, about 18-22 minutes.
(Note the tops of the muffins will deflate slightly.
) Pour the maple syrup into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Then remove it from the heat.
Prepare the strawberries and put them into a glass bowl.
Pour the warm syrup over the strawberries and set in a warm place until ready to use.
