1.  Combine the flours, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda and salt; whisk until well blended. Add the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the oil and whisk again until combined. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.

2.  Preheat the Cuisinart® Breakfast Central to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).

3.  Pour 1½ heaping cups 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, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
