I was reminded when we were visiting my family of my love for jam on homemade waffles.  

The last few times we've visited my mom has made us the waffles of my childhood (which are the greatest in the world, but we all think that about our mother's cooking right?).  It got me to thinking how good it might be to put the jam in the batter.   I've tweaked my basic greek yogurt based waffle/pancake recipe for this.  It's usually a little tangy but the jam sweetens it up, and the raspberry jam can be interchanged with any sweet fruit jam or preserves.  

Raspberry Jam Waffles
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt
2 eggs
3 tablespoons non-fat or 1% milk
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons raspberry jam or preserves, plus extra for topping

Preheat waffle iron on high.  Mix flour with baking soda and set aside.  In a large bowl whisk greek yogurt, eggs and milk until smooth.  Pour flour mix into the yogurt batter, stir until combined.  Lastly, add raspberry jam and mix well.  Pour batter onto heated waffle iron and cook until edges are browned, about 2 minutes.  Serve immediately and top with jam or syrup.
