Foodie Friday: Perfect for Breakfast in Bed

Oatmeal. Bacon and Eggs. Toast. Cereal. Fruit...all worthy and yummy breakfast items, but sometimes you need to kick it up a notch. Recently, I decided to treat my sweetie to breakfast in bed and had one thought: Ebelskivers!

 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
and a yummy pot of tea!

The fancy pan and turners.

I filled mine with lingenberry preserves, blackberry jam,
apple butter, and mini-chocolate chips!

Ready to go!
