Nutella Stuffed Pancakes

Spreading a little love as V day is fast appraching! Since Valentine's day falls on Thursday this year, it will be difficult for me to make special breakfast, lunch and dinner for the special day. So I decided to spread it over the entire week. This is the V day breakfast that we just had this morning. I will be making a special dinner next Saturday and in between, we will have a lunch planned on the 10th! I think this is the great way to celebrate a day in a week.

Back to the post, well, as the name suggests, these are stuffed pancakes. Stuffed with the goodness of Nutella. Just like all of you, my family is crazy about this chocolatey hazelnut spread. Sometimes for a quick chocolate or sugar fix, I take it in a spoon and devour it just like that. It's that good, this stuff!  I've made Nutella Stuffed French Toasts which was a big hit in my household. So this time around, I've come up with another Nutella recipe which was equally delish. The only problem was, we can't stuff Nutella all over the pancakes as they cook so fast. So I had to be content with spreading the Nutella in the middle of the pancake and then wait till I get to the middle while enjoying the pancake. I did try spreading it all around by thinning out Nutella a bit, it gave me nice swirls which was ok, but not exactly what I wanted. Maybe next time, I will place dollops of Nutella all over the pancakes instead of just putting it in the middle. That way I can have a better tasting stuffed pancakes. But in the meantime, I am happy with these babies.

Nutella Stuffed Pancakes
1 cup AP flour
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp oil
a pinch of salt
Nutella and oil(or butter) as required

How to:
Mix AP flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.
Crack an egg in a small bowl, whisk it with milk.
Now add egg mixture to flour mix.
Add baking powder and oil to it.
Pre heat the griddle to the temperature so that when you sprinkle water on it, the drops dance and disappear!
This is the correct temperature of the griddle.
Smear with oil or butter.
Now pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the griddle.
Right away, top with a tbsp of Nutella, quickly cover it with 1 tbsp of pancake batter.
Cook till edges are dry, flip and cook for about 40 seconds.
Make all the pancakes and enjoy!
