Nutella IN Pancakes

We get through a LOT of Nutella in the Foodie Quine house. Or rather my daughter does. She would eat it morning, noon and night given half the chance. If I could remember where I first spotted the idea of Nutella IN pancakes as opposed to ON pancakes I'd give due credit but I'm afraid I can't. It is however all over Pinterest in various shapes and forms. This is how we made our first ever batch. The idea is far from mine but this is our version.



My basic pancake recipe is my Grandmothers (she of the famous Grandma Monearn's Shortbread) hence the imperial measurements. I've never got around to converting it to matric. If it ain't broke don't fix it. We made this on holiday in Galloway where the accommodation we were staying had an Aga hence we cooked them straight on the hot plates. Before anyone comments that the recipe says to cook on a girdle as opposed to a griddle, in Scotland that really is the correct word. You can use a frying pan or griddle.

GIRDLE, n. A met. form of Eng. griddle, a circular iron plate with hooped handle, suspended or placed over the fire and used for baking scones, oat-cakes, etc.


Nutella IN Pancakes

Nutella
4oz Plain Flour
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp Bicarb of Soda
Pinch of salt
1 beaten egg
Milk

Freeze teaspoonful sized discs of Nutella on a silicone sheet or baking parchment, we left them overnight to solidify.

To make the pancakes sieve together all the dry ingredients and make a well. Add beaten egg and mix. Gradually add milk whisking well until you reach a dropping consistency. 
Preheat a buttered girdle or frying pan on the hob. 
Spoon on the batter to the desired size and place on a Nutella disc. Top with more batter and cook as normal
Once the pancake starts to bubble turn over with a palette knife to cook the other side. 
Put in between a folded tea towel on a cooling rack to keep warm.
Don't eat straight off the girdle as the filling is seriously HOT!




Following on from the success of this recipe I'm now going to try incorporating other frozen things into pancakes. I'm thinking peanut butter for starters. Any other suggestions?

  5. SUCH a good idea, I saw a Facebook video of something similar not so long ago but they didn't freeze the disks first and I wondered how they managed to get the second layer of pancake to properly cover the Nutella. Freezing them sounds like a much better plan :) I will give this a go and let you know how I get on. I'm with you on trying peanut butter next too! And what about marshmallow fluff too?!

  7. These look fab, great idea to freeze the Nutella in discs first. My husband just bought an enormous 1kg jar of the stuff, I'll have to point him towards this post!

  8. yes... yes... YES!!!!!! Gorgeous!... I'm not such a big eater of nutella because if I have a jar in the house then it barely survives the day. I kid you not. So I rarely tend t cook with it but I am feeling an excuse coming on to go purchase a jar! Thanks so much for linking to Simply Eggcellent x
