Wanted: Recipe for Ebleskiver (round pancakes)

I was the lucky recipient of this old pan - complete with the original recipe booklet. I have to admit, anytime I see a recipe that calls for a "yellow cake mix" - I think, can't I make it better than some Pillsbury factory months/years ago?

So - i'm in search of the perfect Ebleskiver recipe. I spotted a show on FoodTv last night that showed these little round pancakes filled with bananas. Tasty. However - what is the best batter recipe? The filling seems like the easy part!

Do you have a recipe to share? Feel free to email - twittter - comment - whatever it takes. I want some good recipes to try!!

One of my all time favs! Here is my go to recipe. See note.

3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
2 T canola or veg oil
2 C buttermilk
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
2 C AP flour

Beat egg whites until stiff & set aside.

Beat the remaining ingredients until batter is smooth and then fold in egg whites.

Heat your pan as directed. (My pan is different then yours.)

Fill each hole about 3/4 full with batter. When nicely browned on one side (This happens fast) turn with a bamboo skewer and keep turning until needle comes out clean after piercing the pancake. For me I usually turn it 2 times.

For filling just follow the directions you got or tweet me.

NOTE: If making savory filled aebleskiver, sub one cup of beer for one cup of buttermilk.

I would suggest turning them 3-4 times so they turn out nice & round! Check out the cooking steps on my site - (instructional video is coming soon!)

Heather - I'm really excited about the beer substitute for savory 'skivers! We made Bison Summer Sausage & Cheddar filled æbleskiver last weekend at the Mill City Farmer's Market, and that would have made them even tastier! Tak!

Oooh! I'd like one of these! Who gave it to you? The accompanying Nordicware recipe booklet reminds me of the one that came with the old Bundt pan that used to belong to my 100 yr old foster grandmother!

Let us know how your ebleskivers turn out (I can't even pronounce it!)

If you are lucky, you can find cool antique aebleskiver pans on ebay or at the odd estate sale, where they are often mislabeled as egg poaching pans. I've seen cast iron pans on ebay go for as much as $90. If you are looking for new pans, there are aluminum and cast iron options, also take note of pan size (some get pretty little). We sell an American-made cast iron pan on our site -
Lots of options out there!

I did a google search for something and came across your blog. I love ebleskivers. It's a family tradition for us . . . it goes WAY back to Europe where our ancestors came from. Ebleskiver means slice of apple because traditionally they were made with a sliver of apple inside. Hope you are having fun with it!
