In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Set aside.
Measure 1 cup of ice cream and transfer to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the ice cream for 30-45 seconds, until melty.
In a larger mixing bowl combine the melted ice cream, eggs, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Whisk together. Gradually add in the dry ingredients, stirring to combine with a spatula.
Heat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray before using.
Once the waffle iron is hot, add about 3/4 cup of the batter to the waffle iron, close and cook for 3-4 minutes. Once the waffle is golden in color, carefully remove the waffle and repeat until all the batter is gone. This recipe yields 4 Belgian sized waffles.
Using a knife, cut one of the waffles into the shape of an ice cream cone. Use a second waffle to cut two circles. Arrange the cone and circles on a plate. Add whipped cream, a banana slice and sprinkles to each circle waffle piece. Add a scoop of Cinnamon French Toast Ice Cream to the plate and garnish with a maraschino cherry. Serve with syrup and enjoy! You should be able to form 2-3 ice cream cone waffles from the 4 Belgian waffles.
When you melt the ice cream, you will see chunks of waffle cone pieces. Add those right into the batter, no need to scoop them out. The will soften while the waffles cook.
There will be little lumps in the batter and this is perfectly fine! It will not affect the outcome of the waffles.
