Ebleskiver - Breakfast Choice of Grandchildren


We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled craft time to bring you this very important post on breakfast.  Yes, breakfast. These babies in that above photo are the most requested item I get from grandkids to make for breakfast. They are called Swedish Ebleskiver or aebleskivers. They are light, small pancakes, They take longer than regular pancakes to make but they are so worth it!  Just ask any of my grandchildren!

To make these, you'll need a special pan that looks like this:

This is the recipe that I use.  If you want to download this recipe go HERE.
While you're mixing up the ebleskivers, let your pan heat up on the stove.

Danish Ebleskievers

2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
3 eggs, separated
½ teaspoon salt
1 tsp. soda
2 T sugar
1 tsp. baking powder

Put egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another bowl.   Beat egg whites and set aside.  Beat egg yolks , add sugar & buttermilk, then slowly add flour, soda and baking powder.  Lastly, fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.  Place small amount of butter in each depression of the ebleskiver pan.  Fill 2/3 full of dough.  Cook over low temperature.  Turn with a fork or skewer.  Serve with maple syrup.

I like to make all the batter into ebleskivers and then put the ones we don't eat into a storage bag or container for later.  Later just warm them up in a microwave and watch your little ones be happy because they can eat these every day while their grandmother is taking care of them.  xoxo Grandma
