The secret ingredient you should be adding to your pancakes

There is just something about pancakes that makes them irresistible in all forms. Whether they are whole grain, buttermilk, or topped with a dollop of whipped cream, mornings just aren't the same without a stack of flapjacks. Happily, there are tons of options when it comes to creating the perfect flavored pancake. Adding blueberries or chocolate chips is always a popular choice, but there is one secret ingredient that you may not have tried yet, which will shock your taste buds and change the way you eat pancakes forever. 

If you haven't stuffed your pancakes with Nutella yet, you are seriously missing out. In a new twist on a morning favorite, BuzzFeed Tasty created a mouthwatering video to show you just how amazing Nutella-stuffed pancakes actually are. All you'll need to create this recipe are four simple things: a frying pan, spatula, pancake batter, and of course, Nutella. 

How to make Nutella pancakes

While the first layer of pancake batter sizzles in your frying pan, it's time to take a heaping spoonful of hazelnut goodness and place it right smack dab in the middle of the pancake. Then, before it has a chance to escape, you should pour another layer of pancake batter on top to trap the Nutella inside, officially creating a Nutella-stuffed pancake. If you didn't believe in magic before, this concoction may change your mind.

Once the first side of the pancake is ready, take your spatula and flip it over to evenly cook the other side before sliding it onto your plate. The big reveal happens once you cut the pancake open to watch the melted Nutella pour out, which creates the perfect sweet surprise in every bite. There is no topping needed with this one — maple syrup is so yesterday. 

So, the next time you're prepping pancakes, try adding some Nutella for a unique blend of flavor you never knew you needed.
