Recipe of the Week: Grandma's Ebelskivers

Every Christmas as a kid we would go to Utah and visit my Grandma who would make ebelskivers on Christmas morning.  I made them in 2009 from a recipe I found on-line, but this year my mom sent me my grandma's recipe.  She's a full Dane so her recipe has some legitimacy.

Quentin LOVED them and ate like eight of them, which is quite substantial for an almost two-year-old.

  • 2 c flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 c milk 
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • oil for cooking
  • ebelskiver pan and hook (I used a fondue fork)

  1. Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  2. Whip egg whites to a stiff peak.
  3. Add milk and egg yolks to dry ingredients, mix until incorporated.
  4. Folk in egg whites.
  5. Preheat pan on medium heat. Add 1 T oil to each cup.
  6. Ladle about 2 T batter into each cup.  Cook until edges are browning.  Use a hook or pick to turn and cook until golden brown.

A trick for you to get the balls round, when ready to flip turn the balls only half way over, wait a minute then flip them the rest of the way. You can also place a piece of apple (I parcook them) before flipping, this fills out the ball a little bit better. Add a pinch of cardamon for an authentic flavor. My Mom was from Denmark and we made these as kids. LOL
