Waffle of Insane Greatness

Jordan and I got a Belgian waffle maker for Christmas because our little wimpy waffle/panini/sandwich maker wasn't cutting it. I think I've only had Belgian waffles once or twice before these ones, but they really are so much better than normal ones. There's something awesome about a waffle being crispy on the outside and softy and fluffy on the inside. I got this recipe off of Food Network's website and really liked it. The title is a little over the top, but these really were good. And don't forget to pat on some butter and pour plenty of syrup over top.
Waffle of Insane Greatness
Makes: 2 Belgian waffles
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup whole milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
Butter and syrup, for serving

1.     In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
2.     Preheat a waffle iron. Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
