Ebelskivers

From http://inthekitchenwithkath.com

Serves 3 – 4

1½ cups flour (180 g)

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

2 eggs, beaten

2 cups buttermilk or sour cream

Melted butter, for the pan


1. Stir the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

2. Add the eggs and buttermilk and stir well until smooth.

3. Heat an ebelskiver pan over medium heat until it is hot. (A bit of butter will sizzle when it’s hot enough.)

4. Put just a bit of melted butter in each hole.

5. Put a spoonful of batter in each hole so they are a little more than half full.

(If you’re going to fill the ebelskivers with berries or applesauce, put a berry (raspberries are good) or about ½ teaspoon of chunky applesauce on the batter and then top with another small spoonful of batter.)

6. When the edges of the ebelskivers are dry and the surface is a bit bubbly (very much like regular pancakes), use a fork or a skewer to grab the edges of the ebelskivers, lifting them up and turning them over.

7. Let them cook for a minute or so more until they are nicely browned on all sides.

8. Serve with powdered sugar, jam, honey, or maple syrup.
