Waffles the flat cakes baked in ancient Greece....
A Waffle is a crisp golden-brown pancake with deep indentations on both sides. Waffles originated in Belgium in the 14th century, as a refinement of pancakes. Waffles started as "obleios" that ancient Greeks used to cook very flat cakes between two hot metal plates.
In other words one could say that a waffle is a leavened batter or dough cooked between two plates, patterned to give a shape and a surface impression. Waffles can be eaten plain (especially the thinner kinds) or sprinkled with powdered sugar.
