Want to know what the new favorite breakfast is around the Clark house?
Don’t know what Ebelskiver are? Well, neither did my kids until my sister revived an old childhood memory on Christmas and gave me an Ebelskiver pan. My family on my mother’s side is of Danish heritage. Ebelskiver is a Danish breakfast food. They are basically pancake balls. Sometimes filled, sometimes not. My kids love this breakfast. I love that it not only is a fun way to celebrate our heritage, it is also very easy.
The only way to make Aebleskiver is with the special pan. This pan has half spherical indentations into which you place the pancake batter. When bubbles start to form and break on the top of the batter, you then have the fun of turning them. I use two skewers and simply “flip” the balls over. If you want, you can place applesauce, jam, chocolate chips anything you can think of, in the center of the batter before you flip them. We eat them with butter and either syrup or jam. My kids and husband give them a hearty two thumbs up!
