Apple Ebelskivers (Stuffed Apple Pancakes)
It may have taken me some time to get the name of these guys down ("ay-bell-sk-vers"), but it doesn’t take any time to put a plate of 'em away! They're great with the apple filling as a fun breakfast, but feel free to swap out a sauce or filling made with any of your favorite fruits (blueberry, peach, or strawberry are all great). Make a fun dessert item by filling them with chocolate-hazelnut spread!
You can purchase an ebelskiver pan at most cooking stores, such as Bed, Bath & Beyond.
- 2 cups pancake mix, such as Bisquick
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 eggs
- A couple tablespoons butter, for the pan
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup chunky apple sauce
- Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
Yields: 4 servings
Place an ebelskiver pan over medium heat and to heat it up. (For information on where to purchase an ebelskiver pan, see above.) Melt the butter in a small pan and then turn off the heat.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the pancake mix, milk and eggs, whisking thoroughly to combine. (Have your apple sauce in a small dish next to your batter as you’ll need it quickly once you start cooking the ebelskivers.)
Once the pan is hot, place a small dollop of butter about the size of a chocolate chip into each indent of the pan. Using a spoon, fill each dip in the pan about halfway with the batter -- about 1 tablespoon of batter, depending on the size of your pan. Using another spoon, place a small dollop of the apple sauce into the center of each indent on the pan, leaving a ring of batter all around it to enclose it in the pancake. Top each indent off with another small dollop of batter, another tablespoon or so.
Allow the pancakes to cook for about 1 1/2 minutes, until light golden brown on the outside (you can check them by lifting them up with a skewer, teaspoon or the tip of a knife).
Using two skewers, teaspoons, or paring knives, flip each pancake over in its indent to cook the other side. Allow the pancakes to cook for another 2 minutes, then remove them to a plate until you’re ready to serve them.
Continue the above process until you’ve used up all of the batter. Serve up the ebelskivers as soon as they’re finished cooking with a dusting of powdered sugar, if you like.
