Lightly coat a Cuisinart® Belgian Waffle Maker with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat to desired setting. Put the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Insert the mixing beaters into the Cuisinart® Hand Mixer and mix the dry ingredients on speed 3 to sift. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks and whites into 2 large mixing bowls. Put the buttermilk, milk, vanilla and melted butter together into the bowl with the egg yolks and mix on speed 2 to combine until homogenous. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined. Replace the mixing beaters with the chef’s whisk. Whip egg whites by first stirring whites on a low speed and gradually increase speed to 8 and whip until firm peaks form, approximately 2 minutes 10 seconds. Carefully incorporate the whites into batter base in 3 additions using the mixing beaters. Be careful not to overmix. Pour 2 cups of batter onto the prepared, preheated waffle maker. Quickly and carefully spread the batter evenly. Close the cover and cook until tone sounds. Serve immediately. Note: If desired, we recommend holding the waffles in a 200°F degree oven until all are ready to serve.
