Nutella Strawberry Pancakes

Brunch Dishes

Happy Valentine’s Day! I wanted to get this recipe up before the holiday, because the combo of Nutella and strawberries just seemed perfect for VDay, but didn’t quite make it. Oh well, treats like this should be enjoyed year round anyway, right? I always look forward to whipping up a big breakfast every weekend, and while I usually go the savory route (breakfast sandwiches are my favorite!), occasionally inspiration strikes for a sweet treat too.

Some good looking strawberries from Costco inspired these pancakes. Since I’ve noticed it’s sometimes hard to taste the Nutella in baked goods, I added Nutella to both the pancake batter and the warm strawberry topping. These were the perfect indulgent way to start the day!

Ingredients:

Pancakes:
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup Nutella
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Nutella Strawberry Topping:
1 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons Nutella

Directions:
To make the pancakes, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Whisk in the egg, milk, Nutella, butter, and vanilla extract until just combined. Pour 1/4 cup scoops of batter onto a greased nonstick skillet over medium heat. Flip the pancakes when bubbles start to appear on top, after about 3 minutes. Cook the other side until golden brown. Makes 7 pancakes.

To make the Nutella strawberry topping, place chopped strawberries, sugar, and Nutella in a small pot and simmer over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and Nutella is melted, about 2 minutes. Spoon warm topping over pancakes. Makes 2 servings.

Breakfast Sandwiches with Leeks, Brie, and Avocado

If you could only eat five different food items the rest of your life, what would they be? I used to mull this over regularly with one of my friends growing up – it just seemed like the worst situation ever and I was even a pretty picky eater then! I can’t remember...

Pumpkin Oat Bran Muffins with Crumble Topping

I have a bit of a canned pumpkin puree hoarding problem. I think it’s partly because of the shortage several years ago and the rumors of another this year. I remember looking everywhere for the stuff that fall, and I actually only finally got my hands on some because...

Egg, Bacon, Mushroom, and Goat Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

Having just visited San Diego last fall for our friend Renee’s wedding, I decided to take it easy on the tourist attractions during this trip and instead use my time off from the conference to unwind. I slept in late, ate breakfast while enjoying the amazing views...

Boston Cream Pie Mini French Toast Stacks

While I was visiting my parents in Des Moines last weekend, my mom and I put on our aprons and chef hats, and collaborated on this breakfast treat. She’s the first source I go to when I need any advice in the kitchen because she’s an awesome high school culinary arts...

Mascarpone Stuffed Cornbread French Toast

My favorite dinner to make when I’m cooking dinner for one is breakfast. Apolinaras isn’t a huge fan, so I always jump at the chance to whip up a broccoli cheddar omelet, turkey bacon, and whole wheat toast with jam when he’s out of town or at one of his late night...

Happy New Year! Did anyone else make any foodie resolutions? My goal last year was to get my blog up and running, and I remember spending the first few weekends in January designing the header and side bars for my little site. This year I just want to continue...
