Place twelve individual 1 teaspoon portions of Nutella onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Tap on the counter to flatten the discs. Freeze for 15 minutes.
While the Nutella is freezing, prepare the batter: In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
In another bowl whisk together the wet ingredients.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, pour the wet mixture in the mixture. Fold everything together with a spatula, do not over mix.
Melt a pat of butter over in a 12 inch cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Place two portions of 2 tablespoons of the batter onto the skillet. Cook 1-2 minutes until the pancakes are bubbling on the top and the edges are golden brown. Cook two pancakes at a time and be sure they do not touch. Place one of the frozen Nutella pieces into the center of one of the pancakes. Gently flip the half cooked pancake without the Nutella on top of the other one. Flip this pancake "sandwich" for another minute until the edges are set. Freeze the Nutella disks while you are working. Continue this until you have used all the Nutella discs and batter, adding butter to the skillet/griddle as needed.
You can keep the cooked pancakes in a warming draw or a 325 degree F oven until ready to serve.
Serve with warmed maple syrup and butter.
