Ebelskivers. Have you ever heard of them? They are traditional Danish pancakes. They are light and fluffy because of the whipped egg whites that are folded into the batter. They have a distinctive sphere shape and there is a special pan to help you achieve the perfect pancake. I had to use 3 bowls. 1 to whisk the egg yellows with the milk, 1 to hold the mix and 1 for whipping the egg whites. I bought the mix at Williams-Sonoma but you can certainly make that from scratch. I bought the special pan at Williams-Sonoma also. I made these this morning for breakfast and only my 1 son and I like them so I cut the recipe in half. You put just a dash of butter in each well of the pan then add about 1 Tablespoon in each well. Then you add what ever filling that you might like. I added some chocolate chips to ours. (should have added more) You could use Nutella, jam, jelly, or maybe even fresh raspberries. I can't wait to try even more flavors.
After you add the filling you add 1 Tablespoon to each well covering the filling. Then flip the pancakes after they start to bubble. I used chop sticks to turn them. Williams-Sonoma does sell a tool to help flip but skewers or chop sticks or plastic knives also work.
Enjoy. Top them with syrup or powdered sugar or maybe even cinnamon sugar.. yum so delicious.
