donut waffles with an espresso maple glaze

We all have those kitchen gagets we buy, use once, and then they sit neglected in a cupboard or a shelf for ages. That’s my waffle iron – I’ve only used it a handful of times since I bought it so I decided to dust it off and put it to good use. I love donuts and I love waffles so why not put them together? Added bonus is the espresso maple glaze!
