How to cook pancakes

Cooking is universal for all types of pancakes, you can proceed as follows:

– grease the non-stick pan and heat it for a few minutes, it must be very hot
– pour a small ladle of batter and let it cook for about two minutes until it begins to make small bubbles
– turn the pancake and cook it on opposite side for 2/3 minutes.

I recommend the fire must be lowered before pouring the batter otherwise the dough burns on the outside and remains undercooked inside.

Now comes the tastiest and funniest part, that is to choose how to season them and then enjoy them!
For those who love sweeter flavors already in the dough, you can add honey or a teaspoon of sugar.

The possibilities are many, depending also on the season they can be completed with fresh fruit, maple syrup, Nutella, jam and icing sugar. In short, you have free choice as long as you promise to let the whole family taste them!

Nutella pancakes are a variation of my famous pancakes without butter or bottled pancakes. Usually, you would put Nutella inside or on top and instead this time I wanted to try putting Nutella directly into the dough and see what happened. I admit that I had to try the recipe twice to be able to perfectly calibrate the Nutella with the rest of the ingredients, not too much or too little otherwise it wouldn’t have colored the pancakes enough but now my Nutella pancakes are really perfect.

  • Preparation:10 minutes
  • Cooking:10 minutes
  • Difficulty:Very easy
  • Portions:4 people
  • Cost:Bass


  • 200 g flour 00
  • 200 ml Milk
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 50 g Nutella
  • egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder for cakes


In a bowl put the whole egg and sugar and mix with a spoon until you have mixed them all completely.

Add the milk and mix.

Add the 00 flour and the sifted baking powder and smooth out all the batter for the pancakes.

At this point add the Nutella and mix with a hand whisk so that all the Nutella blends perfectly with the dough.

Heat a pan with the non-stick base and, when it is hot, cook a ladle of dough at a time over medium heat for a few minutes until you see that bubbles begin to form . This is the time to flip your Nutella pancakes on the other side as well.

When you have turned the Nutella pancakes, cook them for a few more minutes and remove them from the pan.

Serve the Nutella pancakes alone or sprinkled with powdered sugar or, if you are not on a diet, spread with a veil of Nutella,  custard,  jam, maple syrup, honey or whatever else you can think of. also with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
