Did you know that on 5th February 2007 World Nutella Day was born? Started by Sara Russo, a food blogger who was dismayed by the lack of Nutella in the US after trying it in Italy, World Nutella Day seeks to not only celebrate the spread but also to introduce people to the many uses of the nutty ingredient. Founded in the 1940’s by Italian pastry maker, Pietro Ferrero, Nutella was originally a solution to tackle the lack of cocoa following World War Two but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that Nutella became a creamy spread perfect for smothering toast with (or in our case, freezing and stuffing into pancakes!)*.
To make these tasty Nutela stuffed pancakes all you’ll need is a baking tray, mixing bowl, sieve and either a non-stick frying pan or crepe pan. Oh, and access to a freezer for those Nutella discs that are almost too tempting to save for the pancakes! If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth but these aren’t quite to your taste, how about trying one of our five Indulgent Doughnut recipes?
