Chocolate Swirl Pancakes

October 11, 2012

Looking for good recipes?

Pancakes, chocolate. chocolate, pancakes.  why is it the two words are going so well together?

Well, after my son kept nagging me for more than a month to make him some chocolate-pancakes, I came up with this idea. I just felt that chocolate chips would be too boring.  yep, I’m getting bored very easily, can’t and don’t want to change it.

I decided to call my best friend Nutella to join me. guess what? she said yes.

She’s here, you’re here, so lets get cooking 🙂


1. One cup flour

2. half a cup almond mill

3. Two teaspoons baking powder

4. Three spoons sugar

5. Two spoons oil

6. One cup almond milk

7. Two eggs

Step By Step:

1. Mix dry ingredients (flour, almond mill, baking powder and sugar)

2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl (oil, almond milk, eggs)

3. Combine wet and dry ingredients – pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix.

4. Add two spoons of Nultela

5. Mix the Nutella just until stripes are showing. Don’t over mix.

6. Scoop the batter and pour over a hot pan.

7. Cook for about 2 minutes.

8. Flip the pancakes and cook for two more minutes.

Recipe tips:

After adding the Nutella,  mix slowly creating 8 shape movements.


Why are we using sugar?

1. For a sweet flavor

2. For a nice golden-brown color

Make one batch of pancakes leaving the sugar out. How does the pancakes looks like compare to the sugar batch? Does it have the same color? which batch is darker and which lighter? does it taste the same?
