  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg + milk to make up 1 and 1/2 cups altogether
  • 15 g melted butter
  • Nutella 1 mini spoon size per pancake pop- about 15 tsp


  • Spoon 1 tsp of Nutella onto a tray lined with baking paper to make about 15 Nutella balls. Cover the tray with cling wrap and place it in the freezer until it is ready to be used.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, and baking powder together into a large bowl.
  • Break the egg into a measuring jug and whisk it then add the milk to make 1.5 cups of liquid and mix it together.
  • Add it to the dry ingredients and mix together.
  • Add the melted butter and combine the ingredients until it makes a smooth batter.
  • Heat a Takoyaki maker or a profiterole maker (these are a bit more shallow though) on medium heat and spray a little oil then pour the batter into each hole about 80% full (so a bit below the top).
  • Once the outside of each pancake pop is a bit more firm, add about 1 tsp of Nutella in the centre of each.
  • Use a kebab stick or skewer to scoop the pancake pops and flip them over.
  • Continuously keep spinning them around until they form a round circle and are evenly lightly brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!



*1 You could use commercially made Hotcake mix. If you use those, follow the packet instructions.
*2 If you are using fillings that are a little runny, I suggest freezing it in portions of 1 tsp size each beforehand.
