What? Never heard of them? Think of them as a cross between a doughnut and pancake. The are a Scandinavian treat that I love to make.
They are definitely not something that I would make at 6am, since you need both a special pan and to whip egg whites!
2 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. sugar
- Beat egg yolks.
- Add sugar, salt and buttermilk.
- Add soda and baking powder.
- Fold in beaten egg whites.
- Grease Ebelskiver iron and fill cups half full.
- Once they cook for a minute or so, fill with jam, preserves, applesauce or other fillings.
- Add additional batter over filling
- Cook for another minute and turn with ebelskiver turners, chopsticks or skewers.
- Serve warm with butter, jelly, syrup, powdered sugar or any other toppings you might like.
|Finished with some powdered sugar |
