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.
