My husband turned the big three zero over the weekend. I wanted to cook him a nice breakfast but we have been a bit like old mother hubbard with bare cupboards, as I have had no time to shop. I knew I would make him pancakes, and was going to stick with his standard topping of sugar and lemon juice, but as I opened the pantry the nutella caught my eye and I came up with a brilliant idea! Nutella filled pancakes!

This is my favourite pancake recipe, they are lovely and light and fluffy due to the addition of baking powder!

2 cups plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tbs sugar
2 eggs
1.5 cups milk (or more if the mixture looks too thick, it should be the consistency of thickened cream)
nutella to blob onto the pancakes
butter to cook the pancakes in

Mix all the ingredients together, except the nutella and butter, trying to get as many lumps out as possible, letting the mixture sit for 10 minutes usually helps if you mixture is particularly lumpy. Heat butter in pan and allow to come to a medium heat, spoon some mixture in and dollop on some nutella, and then cover the dollops of nutella with more pancake mixture. Allow to cook on a medium low heat until golden on both sides and cooked all the way through. The nutella should be lovely and melty at this point. Serve sprinkled with sugar for an extra decadent hit.

Dollop on the nutella to a think layer of pancake mix.
Spoon over some more pancake mix to protect the nutella upon flipping 
Serve sprinkled with some more sugar
Lovely and fluffy and oozy!
