Giant Souffle Muffins with Strawberry Sauce

I saw these giant pancake souffle muffins on The Noble Pig and had to make them immediately. These would be perfect for brunch. 
They were so light and airy, simply delightful I tell you! 

Pancake Souffle Muffins with Spiced Strawberry Pinot JamAdapted from Fine Cooking
Makes 24 muffins

Nonstick Cooking Spray
10.5 oz (2-1/2 cups) all-purpose flour
4.5 oz. (1 cup plus 2 Tbs) cake flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 large eggs, separated and at room temperature
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 oz (6 Tbs) unsalted butter, melted  and cooled slightly
6 Tbs granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-1/3 cups buttermilk, room temperature
Confectioners sugar, jam, maple syrup

Position rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400o F.  Liberally spray two 12-cup muffin pans with cooking spray.  Don't miss a spot.

In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a large, clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed to firm (but not dry) peaks, 2 to 3 minutes.  Set aside.

In another large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the mixer on the medium-high speed until thick, ribbony, and lemon-yellow, 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.  (The batter may be prepared up to this point up to 2 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate.)

Fill the muffin cups to the rim.  Bake, rotating the pans after 10 minutes, until browned on top and puffed, and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out dry, about 20 minutes.

To remove muffins, gently swirl an offset spatula around each muffin and pop it out.
