Ebelskivers: Filled Pancakes and Other Mouthwatering Miniatures

Posted on

Ebelskivers: Filled Pancakes and Other Mouthwatering MiniaturesEbelskivers just might be one of the best things to happen to breakfast since sliced bread – or close to it for breakfast food fans looking to add more variety to the standard choices of pancakes, waffles, coffee cake and muffins for a breakfast baked good. Ebelskiver (also spelled aebelskiver and sometimes simply called “pancake puffs)) are spherical Danish pancakes that are often filled with fruit or jam. Just like regular pancakes, there are a tremendous number of variations you can put on ebelskivers and you can find quite a few in Ebelskivers: Filled Pancakes and Other Mouthwatering Miniatures.

This cookbook is dedicated to these puffy little pancakes, with more than 40 recipes for flavor options that work for breakfast and for dessert. There are plenty of tips to help you fill your pancakes successfully and learn how to get them perfectly shaped. The photography in the book is lovely, as well. The recipes are all relatively simple easy to follow along with. The basic recipes include batter such as vanilla, lemon, ginger, chocolate and pumpkin as basic pancake options, and the finished pancakes include decadent sounding flavors like Sticky Toffee and Banana Rum. Once you have your technique down, it is easy to use them as a jumping off point for your own variations and flavor combinations.

You will need a special Ebelskiver Pan to make these pancakes, as there really is no way to fudge the shape of the finished product. That said, if you’re waiting for your pan to arrive and just can’t wait to try out the book, you could use slight variations on the recipes – minus the fillings – to make regular pancakes if you don’t have an ebelskiver pan to work with. For pancake fans, however, there is nothing like using the real thing to make real ebelskivers and you’ll definitely enjoy the recipes and inspiration found in a book like this one.

    I had ebelskivers once, filled with raspberry jam and topped with powdered sugar, and they were divine. I can’t bear to spend money on a pan that only has one use, though, and that I would probably seldom use. This post has me just about convinced it would be worth it, though!

    we make these every weekend and have two pans. They are totally amazing and one of our favorite breakfasts or lunches. The girls love to dip them in things instead of filling them. This weekend, we made chocolate ebelskivers with two chocolate chips inside every one.

  • These look so cute. I want to make them!!!

    In Denmark “æbleskiver” are actually rarely filled with anything. We just serve them with jam and sugar on the side 🙂
