1. Put the milk and butter in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Once butter has melted remove and cool until just warm. While the milk and butter are heating, whisk the dry ingredients together in a large mix- ing bowl. Gradually add the warm milk/but- ter mixture and whisk until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined. Cover with plastic and refrigerate at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.
2. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).
3. Whisk batter to combine again (batter will deflate). Pour 1 cup of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffle is ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
