My family looks forward to breakfast on the weekend - it means no cereal or oatmeal for them! The weekend is really the only time I make breakfast - unless we have breakfast for dinner! That doesn't happen very often though.

Did you know, International Pancake Tuesday is coming up?! (Mark your calendars - it's Tuesday, 2/17). I love Nutella® (who doesn't?!) - and it just so happens to be my favorite pancake topping! It makes me want to "Spread the Happy" on everything! I thought it would be yummy to combine the two - Pancakes + Nutella = LOVE! Of course, fresh fruit makes the perfect topping for pancakes this special! No syrup needed - really! You won't even miss it! Make this for International Pancake Tuesday, a weekend breakfast - or even for dinner! Whatever you do, just make it! ;)


Here are a few Fun Facts About Nutella: 


  • Nutella® (pronounced “new-tell-uh”) is a tasty, unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa. 
  • Nutella® has no artificial colors or preservatives. Nutella® hazelnut spread does not contain peanuts or peanut ingredients. There is no risk of cross contamination with peanuts in the facility in which Nutella® is manufactured. 
  •  Nutella® hazelnut spread does not contain any ingredients derived from gluten-containing cereals: wheat, barley, rye, oats or triticale. There is also no risk of cross contamination with any gluten ingredients. 
  •  Nutella® hazelnut spread is kosher. For Nutella® hazelnut spread sold in the U.S., the whey included in the product comes from milk, but animal rennet is not used to obtain the whey. 
  •  Since cocoa is an ingredient in Nutella® hazelnut spread, there is a trace of caffeine in a two tablespoon serving.

    For the Strawberry-Banana Salsa:
    • 6-8 strawberries, cleaned and hulled, diced
    • 1 banana, diced
    • 1 tsp. lemon juice
    For the pancakes:
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 2 tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tbsp. white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder

    Instructions

    1. In a small mixing bowl, gently combine the strawberries, bananas and lemon juice. Set aside.

    2. In a medium bowl, combine milk with lemon juice or vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".

    3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Place the egg and butter into a small mixing bowl and whisk in the "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. Allow to stand for 10-15 minutes
