With Shrove Tuesday (pancake day) approaching, it was just the excuse I needed. Although, since I work on Tuesdays, I planned to make pancakes on a non work day instead. So everything aligned nicely, especially when the people at Soup asked if I was interested in taking part in their Nutella project. Nutella was already a brand I was familiar with and more than a little in love with, so I said yes.
I have to confess though, that my experience with Nutella mainly consists of eating it with a spoon from the jar so I was intrigued when I was told that this was a breakfast themed project. Apparently, Nutella has always been a big player in the European breakfast scene, with crepes and sliced banana, or maybe thinly spread on fresh crusty bread. Not one to shy away from a challenge, I jumped right in!
Ellie and I think that Nutella pairs perfectly with (heart shaped for extra fun!) pancakes. We happily munched our way through pancakes with nutella spread thinly on them. For variety, there was some fresh strawberry on the side, but the real star of the show was that yummy hazelnut spread! And maybe the coffee for mummy too... You can see some of the other Nutella creations on Instagram under the hashtag #NewWaysWithNutella

Do you have Nutella for breakfast? How do you eat it?
