  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm milk. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, 1/4 cup of the warm milk and the melted butter. Stir in the yeast mixture, sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir in the remaining 2 1/2 cups milk alternately with the flour, ending with the flour. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks; fold into the batter. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the waffle iron. Brush with oil and spoon about 1/2 cup (or as recommended by manufacturer) onto center of iron. Close the lid and bake until it stops steaming and the waffle is golden brown. Serve immediately or keep warm in 200 degree oven.

Great and tasty recipe. I loved that these stayed crispy even after sitting for a while since I'm usually the last person to eat! The prep wasn't as bad as others made it sound. I used three ...

I had a hankering for fresh home made waffles so I tried this one out. Considering I have never made waffles or used a waffle iron, this was super simple to make. They turned out very moist an...

These are best used with a medium to deep waffle iron. If made properly, they will be light and fluffy inside and crisp on the outside. The aroma, flavor and texture can't be matched by baking...
