Brunch Basics: Ebelskivers


I learned about Ebelskivers through a wonderful blog post by The Thing About Joan.  These delicious tiny Dutch “pancakes”  are a wonderful treat.  They can also be filled with a wide variety of tasty ingredients such as jams, lemon curd, Nutella, etc.  The ones pictured here are filled with our Blackberry Jam.

Ebelskivers from The Thing About Joan

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbl sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 Tbl cooking oil
  • 1 Tbl vanilla
  • strawberry jam, lemon curd, Nutella or other fillings of your choice
  • powdered sugar

Check out The Thing About Joan for the full instructions! 🙂

    These look really good and I think about trying them and getting a machine. I am never really sure though how often I would make these.

      Thanks Cynthia! The pan is really a great thing to have. I struggled for awhile on whether to get one…but I find it to be really worth it. And you can always do partial batches for just you and your husband.

    They look so good! The Fringe Festival in my home town has an ebelskiver van that turns up every year and only sells these little pancakes (with different toppings). There’s always a queue!

  8. Oh goodie, something new…way to go Kenley!

    I love ebelskivers, have the pan and I rarely use it. Your post reminded me I need to dust it off and make some. They are delicious!

    I love them! So happy you made ’em – my dad (who was Danish) made them each Christmas eve and morning. I still have his pan and make them most years!

    I remember admiring these when Joan first posted them! Yum, Perhaps it is a good time to stop admiring and give them a go. 🙂
