“Ebelskivers” My Delicious Danish Pancakes

ableskiverMy latest addiction all began when my oldest daughter introduced me to The Old European restaurant in Spokane, Washington. It quickly became a family favorite stop during our college visits with our daughters.  The menu is filled with mouth watering choices that it make it difficult to choose which meal  one will eat for breakfast.  My all time favorite is their Ebelskivers, a  traditional Danish pancakes in a ball shape, Ebelskivers are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover.

With this new Ebelskiver addiction I began thinking how could I make these at home – then it occurred to me that I could use our panBabycakes cake pop maker.  So, I began Googling for a recipe to begin my adventure of making our first homemade Ebelskivers.

A success it was, we even got a little fancy and began filling them with with Nutella or raspberry jam, which only increased  my addiction a long with now addicting my children to these little breakfast goodies.
