Introducing the delightful Nutella Pancakes – a mouthwatering twist on the classic treat! Unlike typical Nutella-filled pancakes, these gems are carefully STUFFED with warm, oozy Nutella, making them an irresistible delight. The best part? They are incredibly easy to make!


Unlike most pancakes that call for an avalanche of maple syrup, butter, and cream for the ultimate experience, these Nutella Pancakes are an exception. Once you bite into their pillowy softness and taste the luscious Nutella center, you won’t crave anything else. While you can add a dash of color and freshness with some strawberries or a dollop of cream, they are entirely optional, as the Nutella speaks for itself.

Creating these delectable treats may sound unusual, but it all began when I learned about how restaurants make molten lava cake – by inserting frozen chocolate ganache into the batter. So, in the same vein, I prepare frozen Nutella discs. When I make the pancakes, I simply place a Nutella disc on the batter, cover it with more batter, and voila! The result is perfectly heavenly Nutella Pancakes that are far better than the usual Nutella sandwiches or attempts to spread Nutella on the frying pan.

Now, let’s talk about Nutella cravings! I must confess that I typically avoid keeping a jar of Nutella in my pantry because I’m prone to devouring it directly with a spoon, guilt-free. However, when I decide to indulge in Nutella, it’s reserved for something extraordinary – like treating myself after a day of eating a carb-free, dairy-free salad (okay, I couldn’t resist adding some parmesan!). With last night’s healthy choice in mind, I have plenty of calorie credits to justify enjoying these scrumptious Nutella Pancakes for breakfast, don’t you agree?

So, are you tempted to grab one of these Nutella Pancakes from your screen right now? I assure you, once you try them, they’ll become an absolute favorite. And hey, I won’t judge if you confess to being a fellow Nutella-in-the-jar enthusiast! It’s a guilty pleasure we can all enjoy.

  • 10 - 14 tbsp Nutella


  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour

  • 3 tsp baking powder

  • 4 tbsp sugar

  • Pinch of salt


  • 1 egg

  • 1cup + 2 tbsp milk (I used low fat)

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)


  • 1 tsp butter , separated (2 x 1/2 tsp)

  • Sliced strawberries (optional)



Prepare the Frozen Nutella Discs:

Line a baking tray with parchment paper (baking paper).
Spoon 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of Nutella onto the tray and shape it into a disc about 2 1/2 inches (6cm) in diameter and 1/5 inch (1/2 cm) thick. Repeat this step to create 7 discs in total.
Place the tray in the freezer and let the Nutella discs firm up for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Once firm, carefully peel off the parchment paper and keep the Nutella discs in the freezer until you are ready to use them. Be mindful that they soften quickly, so it's best to handle them just before cooking the pancakes.

Preparing the Pancakes:

In a bowl, combine the Dry Ingredients and whisk them together.
Create a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour the Wet Ingredients into the well. Whisk the mixture until it is well combined and free of lumps. Avoid over-whisking; stop as soon as the batter becomes smooth.

Cooking the Pancakes:

Take a non-stick frying pan and melt 1/2 teaspoon of butter over medium heat. Once melted, use a paper towel to wipe off most of the butter, leaving a light coating on the pan. This helps achieve an even golden brown color on the first pancake.
Just before you begin cooking, retrieve 3 Frozen Nutella Discs from the freezer.
Add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the frying pan. Act quickly, placing 1 Frozen Nutella Disc in the center of the batter and then topping it with more batter to cover the Nutella disc completely.
Once bubbles start forming around the edges of the pancake (around 2 minutes), lift up the edge to check if the underside is golden. Once it's ready, flip the pancake and cook the other side until it turns golden as well.
Repeat the process with the remaining batter. After cooking the 3rd or 4th pancake, you may need to melt more butter in the pan. In total, you should be able to make 7 pancakes, but sometimes you might end up with 6, depending on how much batter you use for each pancake.

Serving the Pancakes:

Serve the Nutella Stuffed Pancakes warm. You can pair them with sliced strawberries for added freshness and color, but adding cream is entirely optional, as the pancakes are delicious enough on their own! Enjoy this delightful treat!


When preparing the Nutella discs for the pancakes, find the right balance - avoid making them too thin to prevent breakage during handling, yet resist the temptation to make them too big, as they might overflow while making the pancake. An essential tip for achieving an evenly golden-brown first pancake is to wipe off most of the butter from the pan. This prevents the usual problem of splotchiness in the pancake's appearance. Remember that the Nutella discs soften quickly, and it's crucial to keep them firm for easy handling. Working in batches can help maintain their texture - take out a few Nutella discs from the freezer, cook a corresponding number of pancakes, and repeat the process to ensure the Nutella remains sufficiently firm. When adding the pancake batter, use a 1/4 cup measure filled about two-thirds of the way. This amount is sufficient to cover the Nutella without making the pancake too large or thick. To evenly cover the Nutella, use the edge of the cup to spread the batter quickly, as the Nutella melts rapidly once placed on the batter. In case a pancake bursts and Nutella spills onto the pan, be sure to scrape off the Nutella before making the next one. This prevents burnt bits of Nutella from affecting the next pancake's taste and appearance. Nutrition-wise, these Nutella Stuffed Pancakes may not be the healthiest option, especially considering how hard it is to stop at just one. However, rest assured that the indulgence is well worth it! If needed, you can balance it out by opting for a lighter lunch or something more nutritious later on. Remember, these pancakes are a treat to be savored!
