Did you know that Nutella®, the beloved hazelnut and cocoa spread, is celebrating its 60th anniversary globally? For sixty years, this iconic treat has been bringing joy and adding a touch of sweetness to breakfast tables around the world. Born out of a clever solution to the scarcity of cocoa after World War II, Nutella®’s evolution from a simple sweet paste to a global sensation reflects innovation and the commitment to provide a delectable experience.
In honour of the 17th World Nutella Day, celebrated annually on February 5th, we are excited to share Ferrero Canada’s recipe: Mini Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Nutella® hazelnut spread and Strawberries.
Happy World Nutella Day!Print
RECIPE: Mini Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Nutella® hazelnut spread and Strawberries
3 eggs, whites and yolks separated
2 cups buttermilk (use regular milk if preferred)
1⁄4 cup butter, melted
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup chopped strawberries
6 tbsp Nutella® hazelnut spread (1 tbsp per pancake)
Olive oil spray for frying
Beat egg yolks well, then whisk in the buttermilk and melted butter.
In medium bowl, combine pancake mix, milk and oil. Measure out 2 tablespoons of beaten egg; add to bowl. Discard remaining beaten egg or reserve for another use. Stir just until large lumps disappear (do not beat or overmix). Let stand 1 to 2 minutes to thicken.
Pour approximately 3 tablespoons batter for each pancake onto lightly greased skillet or griddle to make 6 pancakes. Sprinkle with a few blueberries, if desired. Turn when pancakes bubble on top and bottoms are golden brown. Cook about 1 minute or until pancakes are golden brown. Keep pancakes warm until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, spread 1 tablespoon of Nutella® hazelnut spread on one side of each pancake and top with chopped strawberries and additional blueberries, if desired.
Before flipping the pancake, scatter a few blueberries onto the pancake and then flip.
Cook until golden.
Keep in warm oven until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, simply spread layer of Nutella® hazelnut spread on top of each pancake and top with chopped strawberries.
