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!
- 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
- 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.
