Pandan Pancake with Nutella Sauce

I have been daydreaming about making Pandan cake for some time but having a toddler doesn’t give me much time to be in the kitchen and bake the merry way. So what’s the easiest way to feed this craving? Pancakes!

I always want my pancakes soft and moist but not greasy. Using buttermilk is the popular secret to that. Since it’s not always available in the supermarkets here in Asia, substituting it with milk combined with vinegar or lemon always works for me.

Go ahead, treat yourself once in a while and drizzle these pancakes with as much Nutella sauce as you want. Enjoy!

Moist Pandan Pancake

These pancakes are intentionally not too sweet making way for the irresistible Nutella. It is the only way to enjoy these Pandan pancakes. Just an absolute treat!
Servings: 8 pancakes


Homemade buttermilk

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pandan extract
  • a drop of green food coloring optional
  • butter for cooking

Nutella Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon warm milk
  • 3 tablespoon Nutella


  1. Don't overmix the batter. Ignore the lumps. Overmixed pancakes make them chewy.
  2. Make the buttermilk before everything else. It needs about five minutes before it curdles which means it is ready.
  3. If you can find a pandan extract with color in them (assuming you're fine with using food color), use it so you do not have to buy two separate ingredients.
  4. Use 1/4 cup to measure the batter which made 8 pancakes.
