Nutella-Chocolate Pancakes

If you checked out my Coconut Lime Pancake post, you’ll remember that I made CH his own batch of pancakes that same Sunday.  It’s not that he didn’t like the Coconut Lime pancakes, he has just discovered a new found obsession with Nutella here in France and we all know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, I’ve already married the guy, therefore I already have his heart, but I decided to spoil him a little and make him these Nutella-chocolate pancakes for breakfast.  Let’s just say, I had one happy husband for the entire day.

The advertisers for Nutella have done an outstanding job promoting it as a ‘healthy’ breakfast item for kids and while I am not a nutritionist, I am not sure if I wholly agree with that. However, every once in a while as a treat, I say it’s worth it – and as an addition to Sunday morning pancakes, it’s even better.

So, if you are looking to spoil someone or treat yourself, give these a try, you will not be disappointed!


Nutella-Chocolate Pancakes


  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1.5 Tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (or crème fraîche)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons of Nutella, softened in the microwave for 30 seconds
  • butter/margarine for cooking

For garnish/serving:

  • 1 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp diced chocolate (or chocolate chips)


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, gently whisk together the eggs, sour cream, yogurt, water, Nutella and vanilla extract.

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, whisking together as you go.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.  Grease pan with butter or margarine.  Add 4 scoops of the pancake mixture to the pan (about 1/4 cup each).

Cook until browned on the bottom and bubbles begin to appear in the middle of the pancake.

Flip the pancakes and cook for additional 1 – 2 minutes.  Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve immediately with a dusting of cocoa powder, chocolate nibs and a dollup of yogurt.

  2. Wow. This looks amazing. I foresee myself eating the nutella directly out of the jar before it ever makes it into the mixture… so will have to get my husband to prepare them for me. Can’t wait!
