Chocolate Filled Ebelskivers

 Ebelskivers are fun to make.  They are similar to pancakes but they can also be filled with a variety of fillings.

The most important part of making Ebelskivers is the pan.  I found mine at Costco.  It is made by Nordic Ware and it has a great non-stick surface.

Chocolate Filled Ebelskivers

Basic Batter:
3 large eggs, separated.  Beat egg whites until stiff
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Butter in pan
2 cups milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter (for the pan)

In a bowl mix egg yolks, sugar and salt.  In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Alternate adding the flour mixture and the milk to the egg yolks.  Stir until smooth.

Gently fold in the beaten egg whites.

Heat Ebelskiver pan over stove until hot.  Test by dropping a few drops of water on the pan to sizzle.

Brush the pan with butter.  Pour batter into the pan (about 2/3 full)

After the batter has cooked for about a minute, add 10 chocolate chips to each cup.  Gently push chocolate chips into the batter until they are covered.

Cook until bubbles on top begin to pop.

Using chopsticks or a wooden skewer, turn over each Ebelskiver.

The easiest way to flip them over is to gently push a wooden skewer into the side of the Ebelskiver and then gently push so that the pancake flips over.

Continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes or until brown.


Delicious chocolate filling

Dust with powdered sugar before serving

This recipe is also very good without chocolate.  Dust with powdered sugar or roll in cinnamon sugar before serving.
