Nutella covered Blueberry & Milka pancake muffins

What is better than pancakes? – Pancake muffins!

I love preparing cupcakes and muffins because they’re smaller versions of cakes and pies that I would usually make, and pretty easy to share with friends and family. At least once a week I prepare a different batch of cupcakes, and bring them with me to pubs where I meet with friends. If not in pubs, we as friends usually organize pancake parties where we meet, watch TV shows or movies, and eat pancakes. That’s when I got the idea to make pancake muffins with chocolate chips and blueberries, and Nutella was a no-brainer, so I covered them in Nutella.

If you love pancakes, and haven’t tried pancake muffins so far, you should start mixing the batter and turn on the oven!
