    1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 60ml warm milk. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, 60ml of the warm milk and the melted butter. Stir in the yeast mixture, sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir in the remaining warm milk alternately with the flour, ending with the flour. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks; fold into the waffle batter. Cover the bowl tightly with cling film. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    3. Preheat the waffle iron. Brush with oil and spoon about 125ml (or as recommended by manufacturer) onto centre of iron. Close the lid and bake until it stops steaming and the waffle is golden brown. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 100 degree oven.
