One of our family’s favorite New Year’s traditions is to make a Danish filled pancake dish called Ebleskievers. Now, you are likely saying, “Ebel-what?” But trust me on this. They are fabulous…like the sign says.
My mother bought the pan when I was a kid in the little Danish town of Solvang, California, but you’ll be happy to know that you can buy these pans almost anywhere–William Sonoma, Walmart, or even on Amazon. Now that’s not so scary, right?
4 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup melted butter
2 cups milk
Beat egg yolks; beat in sugar. Combine dry ingredients. Add alternately with butter and milk. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold into batter. Grease ebelskiver pan with about 1/8 tsp. butter in each well. Heat pan on medium. Fill depressions with about 1 tablespoon of batter. Add a half teaspoon of jelly, fruit, or chocolate and cover with a bit more batter.

When cooked on bottom, turn with skewers or two forks. Cook other side. Regrease pan between batches. If desired, dust with powdered sugar. Eat them before anyone catches you in the kitchen. heh, heh, heh.
You won’t be sorry.
