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 flour, yeast, sugar and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add the warm milk/butter 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® Breakfast Central to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).

3.  Whisk batter to combine again (batter will deflate). 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.
