Nutella Filled Pancake Puffs

The Ebelskiver Filled-Pancake Pan is a strange looking, life-changing kitchen tool that makes pancake bombs that explode in your mouth.  I bet some of you boys are scrambling for a Valentines Day gift for your Food Network loving girlfriends.  If so, put the roses down (go ahead and still get those chocolates) and get to Williams Sonoma asap.   They even have a great cookbook to go with this cool pan.  Girls, you can forward this blog link to your man if you want!

You can make any kind of pancake/filling combo you wish – possibilities are endless!  Our personal favorite is plain ol’ Aunt Jemima pancakes filled with chocolate and hazelnut Nutella.  Sure this could be a breakfast food…pancakes and all, but we had a craving after dinner-time and made this decadent dessert.

Williams Sonoma Ebelskiver

Williams Sonoma Ebelskiver

Pancake Batter Ingredients
1 cup of Aunt Jemima dry pancake mix
¾ cup milk
1 tablespoon of oil
1 egg

  1. Combine all batter ingredients and stir until lumps disappear
  2. Place a small drop of butter in each of the Ebelskiver “wells” and let it melt over medium-low heat
  3. Fill each Ebelskiver “well” half way with pancake mix
  4. Place a dollop of Nutella on each pancake filled well
  5. Cover each Nutella dollop with more pancake mix
  6. When the bottom of the pancake ball is cooked (after about a minute) use a fork to gently and quickly flip the pancake ball to cook the other side
  7. Cook the other side for about a minute as well or until golden brown

The pancake puffs will be cooked, but gooey and chocolaty on the inside.  Place a few pancake puffs in a bowl along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and berries of your choice.  Dig in.

  4. Just found your website when I googled “stuffed peppers with orzo”. Can’t wait to try this and the nutella pancake puffs.. My daughter is a Nutella freak. Costco loves us. hee hee. We make pancake puffs in our stove stop egg poaching pan, works great. What a wonderful site you have, can’t wait to explore it more.

    • Hey Polly,

      So glad you found me! The Nutella Pancake Puffs are pretty incredible, but what isn’t when it involves Nutella, right?! Seems we share some similar interests…Nutella and Costco are some of our great loves as well. ha! That’s a wonderful idea to use your egg poaching pan for pancake puffs – perfect.

      Thanks again for looking around. Hope you find some yummy recipes to share with your daughter. Keep me posted on which ones you try!

      Blessings and happy cooking!

      • Landon,
        What a beautiful name! Our family had the stuffed peppers and loved them! and the Nutella pancake puffs were a hit! (of course). We even doubled the recipe! We home school so we are trying to make menus in advance and try something new each week! I will be looking back here for more updates. May God bless you and your family!
