Breakfast,Old Recipe Sweet


This recipe is inspired from a sleepless night spent scrolling through Pinterest when a stuffed pancake picture crept it’s way in between all those inspirational quotes that usually only make sense at 3 A.M. and are quickly forgotten at dawn! Work chaos has been ruling this week, and comfort food has sneaked its way in these days!

Although most save a more elaborate breakfast for the weekends, I believe a scrumptious breakfast should be enjoyed on a daily basis. It should be indulgent, pleasing and oh-so-very comforting. Frankly, it’s the weekdays that really require the extra boost and loving in the A.M., n’est ce pas?

This recipe is perfect and convenient to wake up to – freeze the Nutella discs and whip up the batter the night before, and all you have to do is wake up to make these sizzling pancakes. I’m sure no one will complain for this!
