Ebelskivers…

Greetings my few readers (looking at you David McC and Tabitha).

So as there was a slight request for me to continue blogging, here is a bit of toe dip into that. This morning I felt the need to make Ebelskivers…do you know these delicious Danish pancakes?!?! I love them, but am likely the worst flipper in history. (Though I secretly suspect the only people ACTUALLY good at flipping them are cooks in Danish bed and breakfasts.)

Breakfast! Ebelskivers with Lingonberry Jam and fruit salad

Anyway Ebelskivers are a round pancake with lingonberry jam in the middle. Very YUMMY! You have to make them in a special pan mine looks like this:

Anywhoodle, I followed a recipe, which I will link to here, but here are the basic steps:

  1. Make a pancake like batter (including whipped egg whites folded in)
  2. Melt butter into each pan pocket
  3. Add some batter
  4. Add some jam
  5. Add some batter, let it cook
  6. Attempt and fail at ninja flipping the dough
  7. Readjust it so it looks somewhat presentable
  8. Let cook, then remove…

That’s it. The hardest part by far is flipping the dough, though patiently whipping the egg whites is somewhat difficult too…

Here is the recipe I followed…

If you try it, let me know how it works. If you’re local and want to borrow my pan, that works too.
