Nutella Stuffed Pancakes

Author: divas can cook

Serves: 12 pancakes


2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1¾ c. warm milk
2 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Nutella (make sure that it is soft and creamy)
Toppings: fresh strawberries or bananas and cool whip


In a medium size bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together milk, melted butter, beaten eggs, and vanilla.
Gradually add the flour mixture into the milk mixture. Stir gently with a whisk JUST until the large lumps are gone. Small lumps are good. Do no over stir or the pancakes will not be fluffy and light.
Let batter rest for 10 minutes.
Heat and butter griddle on medium high heat.
When griddle is ready add ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle.
After a minute or so add ½ -1 tablespoon of Nutella to the center of the pancakes. Use a knife to gently spread Nutella out a little.
Cover the Nutella with about 2 tablespoons of batter or enough to cover up the nutella. YOU MAY NEED TO TURN DOWN THE HEAT TO MEDIUM AT THIS POINT SO THE OTHER SIDE DOESN’T COOK TOO FAST.When bubbles form on the top of pancake and the underside is golden, gently flip it over and cook the other side until golden.
Place on a plate and make the rest of the pancakes.
Serve warm topped with fresh strawberries or bananas and a bit of cool whip.
These pancakes reheat well if needed.

~TIP~ Watch that heat! I kept my heat on medium or a little above. Top with fresh strawberries or bananas & cool whip! Yum! Don’t overdo it with Nutella. A little goes a long way.
