These were a hit the very first night I made them. I could barely get the ice cream on the 'waffles' fast enough before someone was waiting for another. Instant cake batter makes waffles that are a little sweet and a little crispy, kind of like that drop of cake batter that cooks to a crisp when it sticks to the side of the pan. Yum! Using instant cake batter and ice cream makes them an almost instant dessert. Dress them up with some crushed nuts ( I love to use salted peanuts for that salty sweet combination), coconut or chocolate chips, or crushed peanut brittle and you are done!
1/2 package instant cake batter
1/2 block of your favourite ice cream

Prepare waffles as you normally would in your waffle maker. Set in the oven to cool slightly.
While the waffles are still warm, slice the ice cream into squares.
