1. To make the berry sauce, combine jam and hot water and whisk until combined. Gently stir in the berries until combined. Depending on the sweetness of the berries, you can add a little powdered sugar if you’d like. Set sauce aside.
2. Preheat waffle iron.
3. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, milk, oil, egg, and vanilla for about 1 minute or until it gets a little frothy.
5. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients a little at a time, whisking until just combined; be careful not to overmix. Stir in the chocolate chips. This is a pretty thin batter, so don’t be expecting pancake batter.
6. You shouldn’t have to grease your waffle iron. Ladle batter into waffle iron, being careful not to overfill. Bake according to the instructions for your waffle iron.
