  1. Place ingredients in a large mixing bowl and combine until well blended and smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
  2. Preheat your Cuisinart ® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate.
  3. Pour ⅓ cup batter onto the center of the lower grid; spread batter using a heatproof spatula to within ½ inch of the edge of the grid.
  4. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffle is ready.
  5. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately. You may keep waffles warm until ready to serve in a 200° F oven.
