Ebelskivers are a traditional Danish breakfast dish made using a half spherical pan. This particular design yields pancake like balls that are perfect for dipping or filling with delicious jam. Ebelskivers pans can be found at any local kitchen wares shop like Williams-Sonoma.
For the batter, whip up your favorite pancake recipe.
Heat the pan on medium heat. Add oil or butter to each sphere to keep the batter from sticking.
When the edges of the Ebelskivers begin to look cooked (about one and a half minutes) flip over and allow to cook for an additional 45 seconds or until thoroughly cooked and browned.
Serve with maple syrup, creme fraîche, powdered sugar, and fresh fruit…though jam filled ebelskivers tend to need little more than a drizzle of creme fraîche in our humble opinion. ENJOY!
