If you’re interested in veering away from the classic Pancake Day toppings, why not give this Fruit & Nutella Pancake Roll-Ups recipe a go. We think this works best with our White Sliced Loaf, and served with a dipping dish of warm Nutella on the side.
Get your leftover slices of White Sliced Loaf and flatten them our with a rolling pin, spread some Nutella on top of them and then roll them up. Then, dip the roll-up Nutella-filled bread in an egg and milk mixture, fry them in a hot pan with melted butter in until golden brown and serve with your favourite berries on the side and a light dusting of icing sugar.
