Pancake meets Beignet: Ebelskivers for Sunday Brunch


We’ll be honest, we never heard of “Ebelskivers” before someone gave us a pan to cook them in. We experimented this morning and all we can say is “WOW”.

Pouring the right amount of batter into the pan was a little tricky, but after a few tries we figured it out. We loved playing around with the filling: peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and honey, lemon curd, homemade plum jam.  

They were wonderful, kind of like a cross between a pancake and a hot beignet. We gathered the kids around and made a morning of making them, and crafting stuffing combinations. Our favorite? Lemon curd. Mm.

Make them for brunch this Sunday.

Our Recipe

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
