Eggless Nutella Pancakes – printable recipe
- 1 cup All purpose flour (plain refined flour)
- ¼ cup unsweetened Cocoa powder
- ¼ cup Powdered Sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1 teaspoon Instant espresso powder
- a pinch of Salt
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
- ¼ cup Vegetable Oil or Melted Butter
- ⅓ cup Buttermilk (*refer note below for substitutes)
- ¼ cup melted Nutella (use as much as you like)
- Chocolate Chips
- Whipped Cream
- Ice Cream
- Use plain yogurt. Beat ¼ cup yogurt till you have a smooth mixture. Add 2-3 tablespoons water to loosen the mixture and add to the dry ingredients
- Mix together all the dry ingredients - flour, cocoa, salt, espresso powder, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Pass this mixture through a sieve twice.
- Add the oil, buttermilk (or buttermilk substitute) and nutella and gently mix everything together well enough to form a smooth, lump-free batter.
- Melt ½ teaspoon of butter on a pan. Pour a ladle full of the batter in the center of the pan.
- Let it cook on one side for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. You'll know the side is cooked when you see bubbles all over the top of the pancake.
- Flip the pancake and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Remove on a clean plate and continue with the rest of the batter
- You can stack 2 or 3 pancakes at a time.
- Drizzle some melted nutella / Frost the top pancake with the nutella paste/.
- Sprinkle some chocolate chips on top.
- Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream / ice cream or simply as is.
- It is important to sift your dry ingredients twice at least. This will catch lumps, if any and ensure you have light & fluffy pancakes.
- DO NOT overmix the batter or you'll end up with tough pancakes. Just gently mix till everything is combined and smooth
- Good quality non stick pan is preferred. You can even skip the butter to cook the pancakes if you have a good non stick pan
- If you want thicker pancakes, make a thicker batter by adding lesser buttermilk. Pour the ladle full of batter. Let the batter spread on its own. Do not do anything to it.
- These pancakes are best served warm. You can make the batter and store in the refrigerator up to 1 day in advance. But for best results, serve only freshly prepared nutella pancakes
