Nutella Pancakes

Here you have a really delicious recipes to surprise your Mom on Mother’s day or any day of the week! Enjoy

Makes 6-8 Pancakes
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbs Melted Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Tbs Granulated Sugar
  • ⅓ - ½ Cup Nutella 
  • +butter (to cook) 

I will make Heart-Shaped Pancakes but feel free to make Regular Round Pancakes if you prefer. I’m using two heart shaped cookie cutters, one is about an inch smaller than the other one.

To make the heart shaped pancakes, place a ⅓ cup of Nutella in a plastic bag and Microwave it for 20 Seconds.  Use the smaller cookie cutter to make 6-8 Nutella hearts. Freeze them for at least 30 Minutes.

To make round pancakes, instead of the Nutella hearts make Nutella circles, make them about an inch smaller than the size you will make your pancakes.  Freeze the circles for 30 minutes.

To make the batter, combine the flour, with the salt, baking powder, and sugar, stir well until combined, then add in the melted butter, one egg and the milk, stir until well incorporated. The batter will love lots of lumps, that’s perfect. Do not over mix it.  If the batter is too thick feel free to one or two more tablespoons of milk to thin it out.

Now to make the Pancakes:  Preheat a skillet or griddle on medium low heat for about 3-4 minutes or until hot. ( you want to preheat on medium low heat so the pancakes won’t get to toasted or burned!)

Brush the skillet or griddle with a bit of butter, place the larger cookie cutter right on the center of the hot griddle, and into the cookie cutter add two or three spoonfuls of the pancake batter, just enough so it will spread on an even layer, top this with a Nutella heart, and add more pancake batter to cover the Nutella Heart. Cook on medium low heat for one minute and a half or until the surface of the pancake is filled with bubbles.  Then remove the cookie cutter (the pancake should hold it heart shape now) Cook for another 30 seconds. Then flip it around, and continue to cook on the second side for another minute and a half, or until well cooked.

Repeat this steps until you are done.  The batter is enough to make 6-8 Pancakes. And you can keep them warm in a warm oven, or just wrap them in foil to keep the warm.

Serve with fresh fruit and your favorite syrup.
