Mini Nutella Stuffed Pancakes
These bite size treats were delicious and perfect for any occasion. Remember everyone pancakes are for life not just for pancake day. They are traditionally called Ebelskivers and are often seen at christmas fairs, or small kiosk in shopping centres.
I filled mine with nutella, but you could use anything. Jam, fresh fruits, lotus, peanut butter. They would also be great for baby led weaning, although I would half the recipe amount, and remove the sugar, maybe replacing it with a 1/4 of banana instead for natural sweetness.
They are best eaten warm, which to be honest is not really an issue as they will disappear very quickly from your kitchen worktop. The biggest problem is making sure they are cooled down enough to bite into.
This recipe makes around 24/28 pancakes and you do need my special appa pan which I have blogged about before.
It can be purchased from amazon and I use it lots to make small treats, because lets face it everything tastes better when it looks cute.
