  3. Begin heating one side of the waffle iron over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Flip the iron to being heating the other side.
  4. Open the iron and pour about ½ cup of batter into each waffle well.
  5. Close the iron and set a timer for about 3 minutes. When the timer runs out, carefully flip the waffle and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
