Instructions
  1. To make the waffles, start by preheating your waffle iron.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Vigorously whisk the eggs in large bowl until fluffy. Add the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until just combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Some small lumps are okay.
  5. Ladle 1/4-1/3 cup of the batter the onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown.
  6. While the waffles are cooking, melt the butter in a shallow microwave safe bowl. In another flat bottom dish combine the sugar and cinnnmon. Have these ready for when your waffles are ready to be removed from the waffle iron.
  7. Quickly dip each flat face of the waffles into the butter and then put into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Spoon the mixture over to evenly cover the exposed side. Lift up and gently shake off the excess sugar. Place on a wire rack to cool.
  8. To make the whipped cream, put the heavy cream in a chilled bowl. Beat for several minutes, until light a fluffy. Add the dulce de leche and beat again until just incorporated.
  9. It's best to enjoy the waffles warm with a dollop of the whipped cream.
