Heat the milk until warm. Dissolve the yeast with 3/4 cup of warm milk and sugar. Set aside. Place the sifted flour in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add the eggs, the melted butter, the dissolved yeast, pinch of salt and the flavoring of your choice. Beat the mixture slowly with a whisk and add the remaining milk. Mix slowly until smooth. Place the mixture to rise for 1 hour in a warm place, until the mixture has doubled. Follow your waffle-maker directions for cooking the waffles. Serve hot with powdered sugar on top. Serve the Gaufres with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top, with maple syrup or with store bought chestnut puree (Sweetened). You can serve these waffles for breakfast or as a dessert.
