These waffles are called cake waffles as the preparation of the batter is similar to making a sponge cake. i.e. Beating the eggs and sugar till double in volume, fold in flour and melted butter. The batter is then ladled into heated a waffle maker. The cake waffle (original flavour) is really fragrant with a rich egg flavour, crisp crust and moist crumbs! I really loved the texture and taste of this cake waffles that I re-create the recipe by adding matcha powder and cocoa powder. Tasted so heavenly with a scoop of homemade oreo ice-cream...thumbs up!
Unlike the convention way of waffle making, this cake waffle batter is not allowed keep in fridge overnight or in room temperature for too long. You need use it immediately if not the waffles will turn out flat.

Smooth, creamy homemade Oreo ice-cream without the need of an ice-cream machine. No need to stir the mixture every hour or so to break up the icy crystal! I've actually added more crushed cookie into the mixture, each mouthful you can taste the bits of the cookies! Yum!
