EBLESKIVER STUFFED WITH BANANAS


Pronounced "able-skeevers", this Danish treat is a cross between a pancake and a popover.   They are cute and fun to eat.  You can stuff them with anything.  Today I stuffed mine with ripe banana chunks and served them with a dusting of confectioners' sugar, maple syrup and whipped cream.



I used the gluten free pancake mix from Bob's Red Mills.  You need to use two skewers to turn the batter in the wells to make them round.  I used two chopsticks to turn the batter as it cooked in the ebleskiver wells.  

I found the ebleskivers more filling than they looked.  The girls could only eat one and I barely managed to stuff 3 down.  

I think that the ebleskiver pan shows good promise as a takoyaki pan.  I'll have to try it soon with something savoury!   I purchased my pan from Williams Sonoma and have only used it twice.  I now recall the previous time I made them that we overdosed on them and that's why I haven't made them in a while.  Next time, I need to make a smaller batch!

This pan is AWESOME! We went to Solvang a couple years ago and loved these!

I'd never heard of these before but they look wonderful. Might have to have a go at making them for pancake day instead of normal pancakes!

Beautiful photo! My attempts haven't come out so perfectly round. Any tips? Do you think it's the batter? How full do you fill the well? Thanks!

SeaJay,
I filled them from the spout of my measuring cup...almost to the top. Then I used the tips of the chopsticks to turn them upside down in the wells. I diluted the pancake batter a bit with more milk because it looked too thick to pour.

Thanks Cakebrain! I'm excited to try these with those changes. My kids are always so excited to see what I've put inside. (Last time it was blueberry jam -- yum!)
