A soft, bread-like cake with a surface of uniform indentations similar to a honeycomb. Waffles are made with a pourable batter that usually consists of flour, milk, oil, sugar, eggs, salt, and baking powder. All-purpose baking mixes, which consist of premeasured dry ingredients, are also available for ease of preparation. The necessary liquid ingredients are added to the all purpose mix, which can then be used for waffles, pancakes, or biscuits. After the batter is prepared, it is poured onto a waffle iron that cooks the batter and forms the honeycombed pattern. Waffles are traditionally served for breakfast or brunch and may be topped with syrup, fruit, or butter.
