These Ebelskivers are a chore to make…three mixing bowls, a whip, beater, measuring tools, brush, pan, individual servings…but totally worth it!
The pan is from Williams-Sonoma Cookware. Don’t bother with their packaged mix, not worth it. But the recipe included on the pan is fool-proof. I’ve made these so many different times this past year, each time with perfect results.
My favorite filling/topping combo has got to be fresh banana with cinnamon-sugar. A close second is boysenberry preserves with powdered sugar.
Ebelskivers from Williams-Sonoma Cookware
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 4 eggs, separated
- 2 cups non-fat milk
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter plus 1/2 cup for cooking
- Fillings (fresh banana, boysenberry preserves, chocolate chips)
- Toppings (whipped cream, maple syrup, powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar)
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk and the 4 Tbsp melted butter. Whisk the yolk mixture into the flour mixture until well combined, the batter will be lumpy.
In another bowl, using an electric mixer fitter with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff, about 2-3 minutes. Gently fold the whites into the batter in two additions.
Melt the remaining butter and have it ready with a pastry brush. Put 1/4 tsp butter in each well of the Ebelskiver pan. Set over medium heat than heat until the butter begins to bubble. Pour 1 Tbsp (I use a cookie scoop) of the batter into each well. Put 1 tsp of filling of your choice in the center of each pancake and top with 1 Tbsp batter (not necessary if using a cookie scoop size to start). Cook until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy, 3-5 minutes. Using 2 wooden skewers, flip the pancakes over and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with topping of your choice and serve immediately.
